I have worn my new trousers all day today and they are super comfy and cool. I do rather wish I had lined them though …
Hindsight (guffaw snort) is a wonderful thing and from now on all linen garments will be appropriately lined/underlined. Should I have known better? Yep probably.
Now there is a bunch of information out there about pre-washing linen and tips on how to sew it but not so much actually specifically reminding folks to beware its tendency to bag. I know you experienced sewers are all smiling and shaking your heads with pity, but for those of you who are surprised please read Carolyn’s excellent post on the subject. Immediately. Now. Off you go.
What am I to do with these trousers? Retrieve the closures – I love YKK zips and am not wasting a single one – then they will be tossed into the re-purposing pile.
Lesson learned. The end.
