…that I had to go out and return a movie rental today (Evan Almighty – Clarke, Clarke & Clarke give it six thumbs up). Otherwise, I would probably have spent the day curled up somewhere cozy in my new lounge pants / pajama bottoms.
And I dare say that it wouldn’t have been too difficult to encourage the little people to join me in theirs.
Neil lucked out – not enough fabric for a fourth pair
The nitty-gritty: The fabric is Alexander Henry’s Trick or Treat, and the patterns are Simplicity 4429 and 4336. I made mine a size too big (at least) and took them in an inch on each side. Much better. I also shortened them by 6 inches since I’m not as tall as they think I should be.
