No, I didn't forget the seam allowances. I graded up 7 friggin inches for my spacious behind. And no, just no.
This is when I turn to mending. Generally, if it's in the mending pile, it's not carrying a heavy weight of expectations. And I am better at mending that most things.
Edgar Martinez Day is coming up. I bought this back in the days before children, when I weighed as much as a sack of dog food.

He makes the next one.
