Time to go to my favorite sewing shop in North Carolina! I’m taking my pattern with me, my best (rough) sample, and some test material.

pattern and assembly instructions which will be largely ignored

Despite our different aesthetics, I admire everything about the way Carol approaches this project. ‘If you can cut the fabric,’ she says, ‘I can start to figure out how this whole thing is going to be put together.’ Great–and I start cutting the fabric without measuring it and get it totally wrong. After laying the pattern out and methodically marking and cutting it, we’re in business again.

Back in Durham, Phil is the first victim. The sizing seems right for 30 to 34 inch waist. I make a note to get a wider variety of models.
