My lucky day

I decided I would go for trousers using my boldly patterned cotton fabric. There wasn’t enough for the upper part which goes down to a triangle in the back, though, so I set off for some hunting. I buy most of my fabrics in thrift stores, and the secret of thrift store shopping is to buy what you find, not go looking for what you want. Today, however, I found just the green canvas I needed. And there’s enough for a jacket or a shirt to match the pants. Yay!Image
