Strip and strap on

Got anyone’s curiousity up? Got anything else up?

Well, sorry. No explicit content despite the hints. Just some explanatory content:

As may be discernible this is the top par of a pair of (short) pants and five strips of material before they went on those shorts as belt straps.

The shorts belong to my eldest daughter. The one wearing a fault patterned sweater in an earlier post. She likes colours, which is lucky for me because I made a blunder cutting these shorts, laying the pattern pieces the wrong way on the material. Which meant there was too little and I had to add on. The turqouise was left over from sewing another pair of pants and was okayed by her.

The irony is that I could have done without those gussets. Because skinny as she is the shorts proved a bit too big for her. Since her belt was apt at slipping she asked for straps.

I dug out pink-and-white scraps as well as turqouise. Colour-loving that she is she went for the latter. And I got the joint pleasures of using up a long strip and improving her shorts.

Now if we could just get the heat of summer back, everything would be good.
