The last time I shopped for jeans, I tried on a pair that I'd have
liked better a bit looser, so I tried the next larger size in the same
brand and style -- and I couldn't even put a leg into them.

That's why that was the last time I shopped for jeans. I've been
making my own for decades.

Wish I could hire a seamstress to do it for me -- I'm about two years
behind. I know there is more than one in the county, but they don't
advertise.

They really are available. You just have to go to hardware stores and not clothing retailers. https://dungarees.com/carhartt-10208...B&size=&cid=73


"They really are available. You just have to go to hardware stores"?
Err.... She was talking about a "seamstress", a lady that makes
dresses. Are they really found in hardware stores?

cheers,

She was talking about women's jeans. Levis as well as most dungarees were made as long wearing work pants.

You replied, saying "You just have to go to hardware stores"

I stated that, "Err.... She was talking about a "seamstress", a lady

You reading comprehension seems to have lack power on hills...

I believe that Joy was complaining about the fit of the working pants designed to look sexy and not to be practical.

Apparently your mind has turned off. If it was ever on. She was talking about how she had to alter practical clothing such as Levi's to fit her comfortably. But then since you really have become rather slow in the English language perhaps you should go back to school. The Thai's have English schools that can teach you not only the meaning of words but the importance of actually reading what you intend to comment upon.

You continue to show a rather low IQ. You most certainly have never been any sort of engineer despite your giving us the impression that you were.
