So yeah, long time no see. Life has been crazy, and is definitely not planning on slowing down until August at the earliest.
Anyway, I inherited my mother’s old sewing machine, and pulled it out to shorten some jeans. No pictures because I am focussed, but have some timings:
I had 4 pairs of jeans to shorten. Because I am
a muppet very enthusiastic I didn’t note what time I started, so the first jeans took more than 15 minutes to do. I then did the other three pairs all together, which took an hour to cut and pin, and then an unknown amount of time to hem them all. (I know, I really rock this timing thing…). I think had to support the thighs in one of the pairs (thinking back I should’ve done all of them…), for which I used the offcut from the hems. It took an hour to hem and support the thighs, so in total maybe 2 and a half hours??
In future, I hope to have more accurate timings for things (I’m recording time spent knitting etc as well, it’s a bit of a learning curve to get used to it, but I think it will be useful and eye opening to learn how long things take me!)
