So I'm watching the "Un-Wedding Dress" episode. One divorcee' states she wants all cruelty-free fabrics - including no wool!
Umm, sheep nowadays (for the last 500-800 years) are bred specifically to grow longer hair. How can someone say that shearing sheep is cruel? When they are sheared, they are more comfortable, can be dipped and have the parasites off them, don't get blown away in a high wind, and their babies can feed more easily.
While the shearing itself LOOKS harsh and careless, the shearers are VERY careful to not harm the sheep. A scar means lower wool production in addition to a vector for disease.
So I'm short. My rise is short. I can take a pair of utra low rise pants, and they hit me just below my natural waist.
I saw "my" brand of pants on eBay marked 18A. For some braindead reason, I think 18 ankle. I get the pants, and they are 18 average! I hem them up, they fit nice, except.... well, as my friend would say, "penis pants!" The rise is long, and the extra fabric pokes out.
Now, how to fix it? Can it be fixed?
I usually buy petite pants, but those also have a bit of the same problem, so a fix I can do to all of my pants is appreciated!
Or, how do I pattern a correct rise? I have a good old Singer 99K, so sewing layers of denim or leather is not a problem!
