Inspired by an awesome pair of pants I found on Etsy made by re-purposing found fabrics... I visited my amazingly skilled friend LJ with her room full of machines. She not only smoothed the kinks of my sometimes battle-axe sewing style, she made me herby pumpkin soup too!
So...I have had these lovely pants for a while, and have never 100% enjoyed wearing them with the fear that the loose button hole will win and I embarrassingly wont. Here goes the photo montage...

|The easy route, sewing the loop holes down first.|
