I visited my preferred fabric source today: the dollar rack at my favourite thrift store, and came away with nine or ten garments of cotton, linen and wool. After washing them all, I realised that I held in my hands a rather nice pair of linen pants that fit me. They were a little too short, so I let down the hem and covered the resulting mark with some trim. Voila! A groovy pair of soft, wide-legged linen pants for a buck! Yay!
