Saturday is good for putter jobs and finishing up projects that got side-tracked during the week. Here is a mending job that makes me smile....this is a pair of my pants that fit well but they are just that 'little bit too short' to feel good.........I have finally found a solution-I cut the pants off 2" up from the finished hem, I measured the grossgrain ribbon ( 1 1/4" wide) to fit the pant leg width and seamed it, tapering it a bit narrower at the bottom, and then topstitched it 1/4" over the top of the pant leg with a very small zigzag stitch(for Designer SE owners it is the A5 stitch). I then lined up the seam with the bottom portion I had cut off and VOILA! the pants are just a bit longer and now also very cool!
I picked the ribbon color to match my 2 most often worn colors, brown and teal but your choices are only limited by the color choice at your local fabric/craft shop!
