~Gulp~"I have not even made your REAL shirt", I snarled.
Who does he think I am? Betty Crocker? er I mean Martha Stewart? Okay how about Peter?
Men's pants? Don't cha think that is pushing it a bit?
Well in truth nothing it out of the question where hubby is concerned. He is a good man. One of the finest of God's creations...and I really mean that. Hubby is also a rather small creature. 5'6" soaking wet, I mean standing tall and although there is a "Big and Tall" shop for men, there is no such thing as a "Men's Petite Shop". At least I have never run across one. Hubby at the age of 49 has a 30" waist. Ugh! His waist was 29" when I met him 22 years ago. Ugh!
What is the problem you say? Well unless we go to an expensive men's store, we/he usually can't find any pants in RTW that are under 32". And they just don't fit.
So I just threw caution to the wind and purchased the only 30" waist sewing pattern from E-Bay.
Just kidding, but hubby sure WOULD look swell in those short~shorts.
I bought this pattern and plan on making the non-pleated version over to the left~Mr Arms Crossed Scowling Blond Man.
