Faded beauty

ImageAt the last washing, I noticed how faded the colors of these pants have become. The red is no longer very bright, the white is no longer very…white. No surprise, really, since I’ve mended them several times.

When I made them some 3 or 4 years ago, it was the colors that attracted me, and the pattern which makes me think of balloons. I didn’t quite have enough fabric, so I had to attatch a piece. Instead of making it invisible, I pointed it out with a thick, bright red seam to make a detail out of it.Image

I also love the decorative seams on my machine, used this one at the hem and at the top.Image photo full figure:  Paddy  K  details: mine

    Faded or not, they are pretty darn cool.
