The only pants I have that fit well are my jeans. Two pair. All my other pants are too big, because I've lost just enough weight to notice.
Back in early September (when it was still hot here), I bought three pair of corduroy pants to wear in the winter. As I remember, I got them at Penney's. Now that they're the droopiest pants I have, I went back to Penney's to get a smaller size, but the salesgirl just gave me a blank look when I asked.
"There might be something on that clearance rack over there," she told me. There wasn't.
I should have known, though. It's February. Everyone is supposed to buy a swimsuit and some sundresses now, because that's all they have at the store. It's frustrating the way they sell winter clothes in August and summer clothes in February, as though you know what will look good four months from the time you bought them.
So now I'm stuck with a bad choice for my work clothes (we only get to wear jeans to work on Fridays and rainy days). I can either keep wearing the baggy pants (my dresses are mostly for summer), or I can try to take them in. I'm good at sewing, but corduroy is very exacting--the mistakes will show. It will be a measure-twice-cut-once assignment, should I choose to accept it, and between work and memorizing histology slides for Anatomy class, I'm not sure I have the time to devote to it right now.
