Here's where the pink starts to come in. The trousers (pants?). Around here most people use the word "pants". "Trousers" is hardly ever used and sounds outdated. I do remember from pattern drafting class that there are "trousers", "slacks" and "jeans". The last one is self-explanatory, but I don't think anyone makes the distinction between "trousers", "slacks" anymore. Come to think of it, I haven't really heard anyone use the term "slacks" in ages, though way back, I do remember it being used all the time. Anyone have any insights on this?
Enough of that.
Now I do have to go tackle the buttonholes on the jacket. They're the only thing left to do (well, that and sewing on the buttons). I've procrastinated, made enough sample buttonholes to outfit many jackets, and I'm keeping myself from tackling other sewing, because I'm all set up to do these buttonholes. Once they're done - I'll have a new outfit to wear! Even that thought hasn't managed to get me over my insane fear of putting these buttonholes in the jacket.
