Orginally they were suppose to have turned up cuffs, but they weren’t staying up at all, so I turned them up and stitched them down. Same effect, much less annoying. The gingham only goes up a couple inches on the inside, but I think the next pair I make will be fully lined/reversable and I’ll just sew on the contrast cuff like I would with binding.
I need some way to mark the back to making it easier for H to successfully dress himself. These have a piece of twill tape I sewed in like a tag, but if I make them lined and reversible I won’t want to put a tag on the waistband. Maybe back pockets?
I like the way the tabs at the cuffs turned out. And the button hole settting on my new sewing machine works like a dream.
