This fabric is a pain to stitch, and is very thick, so it's best done by hand. The hems are often very long, or a thick roll, because we can't cut the fabric. The pants may need to get longer for a different kid next year, or the same kid may grow 5 inches in the next couple of months. Believe me, it has happened! I can't complain too much, though, since it's our last year with the high school band. And, it really is great to see them looking sharp on the field.
Hope you are all having a fine weekend.
