|Wow, my hips look huge in this photo!|
And the coin pocket is sticking out!
I debated with myself whether to take them back or not, but, let's face it, that left leg wasn't comfortable to wear, and no-one wants their inseam down the front of their leg, least of all a seamstress. I decided to wear them into a store when I was already in a shopping centre to buy groceries, and without hesitation the shop assistant asked if I would like another pair put aside for me to swap when I was able to come back. I tried the new pair on just to make absolutely sure that this pair wasn't going to have the same problem.
Why did I hesitate to take them back you ask? Well, the main reason was that I would have to hem a second pair before I could wear them again! In future I probably just need to take more notice when I buy jeans in the first place. Yes, it's hard to tell if there's going to be a problem when the jeans are so long that you're treading on the hem, but you'd think in my line of work that I'd notice these things! I have been known to reject clothing based on other sewing faults!
