You might recall, back in April, I did a long post about how I was going to replace my Gumby suit (rain suit). Well, that got as far as needing zippers (which was immediately), and then it stalled because we don't have a fabric store except Wal-Mart any more.
I finally found zippers in May, but have I done anything about it? Of course not. I'd rather wait till the last week before a hike. The easy half is done.
The only thing I didn't do quite right is that the back pocket is just a little too high, but it doesn't really matter all that much.
I did shorten the legs so they don't drag on the ground.
In other news: I worked at cleaning up the kitchen, and did errands. It took me a while to get the sewing set up and all the things collected that I needed. For someone who used to sew all the time (see Sewing and Breathing), I sure don't have my sewing supplies act together any more.
Onward to the jacket. I have to take the old one apart to make a pattern. It's almost like an old friend (a pretty much dead one), but I HAVE to cut it up. Sigh.
