Happy Lunar New Year

For some dumb reason it occured to me, just before leaving the USA, that a cute clothing item would be knee-length cuffed pants for ladies. None of my fashion ideas ever seem to become a fad, so, I figured I'd have to resurrect my sewing "skills". To my surprise, here in Korea, ladies are wearing the very thing! Lot of good that will do me. I can't shop here. The sizes just don't fit. But, hey! How about them "sewing skills"? So, with a little snipping, ironing, and stitching (using the tinyest travel mending kit), here they are! Just in time for the holiday!

The elevator in the hall of this building is surrounded by mirrors. It wasn't easy, but I managed to get a front-and-back view.
Probably to get me off his doorstep with my repeated flash-sigh-delete (trying to get the angle just right), the next-door neighbor showed up and offered his photography ability. I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but he was supposed to focus on the CUFFS! Also, the leg lengths are looking uneven there. Think I should go bang on his door and ask for a re-take? I could sweeten the pesterment with a "Happy New Year." No, probably not.

I like the shorts! That's a great idea. If it's 'the thing' in Korea, it's sure to come this way, so you'll be leading the trend

I love them. What a great job. And I'm glad that the neighbor didn't just focus on the cuffs. :-)
