Flarey

It's getting to that time of the year when all my nephews need new pants to fit their ever growing legs.

Now that my overlocker has been serviced, I can whip these up in no time, as I no longer have to sew the seams on the machine as well.

These new flares are for Moo Moo - denim recycled from a pair of Moo Moo's mums old jeans.

Cute dacks! You have reminded me that I really need to learn how to use an overlocker...I'm sure it would make my life a whole lot easier x

they look really good! I wish I could sew up some pants, the one and only time I tried they were WAY too small!

They are gorgeous dacks! I love the attention to detail, with the red stitching for the applique - looks just perfect.
