Despite my best efforts, the Antigone trousers are making slow progress. The legs are simple. The top end? Ugh. You have to leave enough space for anatomy. Not hard in fact as if you do what I did (in my innocence) you end up with something that will comfortably accommodate two cast members at least. This plainly would not do. The poor kids would have been wallowing in unseemly yards of fabric. Plus, I don't have enough material for such indulgence.
I ended up cutting out a random chunk and re-stitching and now have a pair of vaguely functional trousers. They are neither elegant nor anything a person would choose to wear, but that is the nature of costumes. Since then I have disembowelled a pair of ancient pajama bottoms and things are going better.
Mikelmerck Bestiary, your turn is coming. I have earned you.
