I used Char’s tutorial for hemming jeans HERE to shorten these capris. They were getting really stretched out around the knee area and frumpy looking to me. It wasn’t helping that my legs were so white, eh?
It was a bit tricky because of the tapering out portion at the bottom of the capris, but they are now my most worn, most comfortable pair of shorts. Legs still = white, but with a bit of color due to some lotion tanner. I love that stuff. I probably should have applied about 10 coats to resemble a tan, but at least they aren’t as bad as before!
I’ve started to run/superfastwalk 3 times a week. My boys ride their bikes while I push B in the stroller. It feels GREAT to be exercising again! Doesn’t the woman below look like she’s having fun? I do not look like that while running. But I also don’t where jeans and a turtleneck while running. (try and find a non-copyrighted ‘jogging with stroller’ image—it wasn’t easy!)
I have a ton of projects on hold. I’ve even been feeling like sewing a little more the past couple days (though I haven’t had a chance). It’s weird how slowing down on this blog made me feel behind in so many other areas of my life. So I’m hoping to start incorporating at least a little sewing in once a week.
Thanks for still stopping by, even when things are slow around here!
