Or. Everywhere I went, my trousers followed.
Where did your sewing follow you this year? Mine tucked itself neatly between the sun-cream and the woolly socks and trailed us to a northerly Shire where the roads were steep and the locals were friendly. Much is made of the English North/South divide, but honestly, being a at-least-fourth-generation Southerner I can safely say that when you ask your spouse a question a native resting on a bench nearby does not usually respond.
Lost Southerner: “I wonder if there is a short cut to the car park from here?”
Friendly Local: “Aye lass, there’s a path up back.”
Taken aback, but grateful, Southerner: “Gosh, thank you.”
Friendly Local: *returns to the task of rearranging the contents of his shopping bag*
Sew. The sewing. These are two pair of almost-but-not-quite Margo trousers. One in a nautical linen from Guthrie and Ghani, one in a floral cotton From Hong Kong.
I’m rather in love with the flare although you (well, I) have to be careful that you/I don’t catch the hem and land teeth first on the cobbles.
What would the locals have made of that?
A footnote of outtakes, just for Gillian and the #BetterPicturesProject. Here’s me somewhere new, trying to capture movement and even trying a prop!

What a fun bunch of outtakes!!!! Is that a staircase or an alley? Your pants are the perfect amount of crazy – They look so fun to wear!
Thanks! They are great fun to wear.
The photos were taken on a very steep cobbled lane, treacherous on a dry summer’s day, I’m guessing impassable without climbing equipment during winter!
I love those pants so much! That fabric is awesome and fits the style of the cut perfectly.
Thank you, they have been the rather surprising (to me) favourite of the year.
