I might be able to wear shorts next week when I am out and about. You never know, there may be a bit more sun coming along after this rain which is falling at the moment, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some good weather. The blue baggy shorts are getting a tad scruffy now, the stains won't wash out of them so I think they will be relegated to garden and pottering around use.
I bought a pair of grey shorts back in April for £2 from the Hospice Charity Shop. How do I remember that? Because it says so on my post for Friday 6th of April, ha ha. Anyway, the shorts were too big so I put some darts into the waistband and moved the hook and eye fastener a bit further along so now they fit to my 28inch waist.
However, the side pockets were too small to fit a map into so another minor adjustment was needed. As I didn't have any suitable spare grey fabric I thought black would be a good choice. Then I had second thoughts. Why settle for dull and boring grey and black, I wear black all the time. Why not jazz them up a bit with some colour. I removed the original pockets and made some new and bigger ones from a piece of fabric I got from the Scrapstore. The flaps have velcro fastening. Wadya think? Cool eh.
I think you will agree that this exclusive outfit would not look out of place on the catwalk amongst some of Victoria Beckham's exclusive designs. I am quite willing to negotiate a deal with her should she wish to contact me. We could make a lot of money together, ha ha.
