I finished my mini bloomers with elastic through all the casings. I think they're pretty cute.
I got my beau's new Shipwreck costume ready - took a Navy button down shirt, shortened the sleeves and sewed on name tapes and a patch. Pretty easy. And hemmed his new pants - heavy jean bell bottomed style. Had to shorten them by six inches. Cut off 4 1/2 inches, then did a 3/4 inch hem. And I re-enforced the stitching on the waistband button.
Hopefully I'll have time before Trauma tomorrow to put elastic across the bottom of my spats.
