Baggy Trousers

When I was going to college this was a massive hit and everyone was wearing them, baggy trousers. I was the only one wearing a straight pair of corduroy trousers, too skinny, too short as we often couldn’t afford new clothes.

So I made myself a pair of baggy trousers on my Singer sewing machine from a pattern of crispy paper that was given to me and thick grey corduroy fabric for which I saved up allowance and did chores.

Oh and I just remembered, I used to make leather wallets and bible covers on that sewing machine which I sold to church members, that’s how I earned a few quit too then.
