So yeah, aliens came and took me away to Planet Faaaaaaark! and now they've barcoded me, I expect they'll be back for more alien fun and experimental hi-jinks.
Yesterday I recovered briefly from my abduction adventures to do something about making these awesome flowerhead-people pants fit me.
The waistband had elastic so I removed it and unpicked part of the waistband.
Re-checked the fit and sewed the new side seams, leaving a gap for a new side zip.
I didn't need to unpick the zip, I just cut it off with the excess fabric and replaced it with another one (white instead of brown).
My latest pair of big pants!
I wore them to queue up at a local school to vote in the Australian Federal Election today.
I voted for The Arm Party (yep I just made that up but it's brill right?)
