I feel lucky, then, that at least I had a little notice of this parental task. Or so I thought! I knew I had to make flares for Monday, but miraculously that turned into Friday. This required a little quick thinking this morning.
When we eventually agreed on a pair of jeans to be sacrificed, I realised that, unusually, they had no side seams. So, with a bit of help from Amy Butler (her fabrics are just perfect for this!), I whipped up some godets and enjoyed letting those hours and hours of expensive degree study come out to play.
