In my search for the perfect (for me) trousers it became apparent that what I really needed to do was raise the waistline.

Quite a bit, actually.

All well and good but aren’t higher waists just for unstylish ladies of a certain age?

Ok…I know I’m not exactly Michelle Obama.

And any comments about my advancing years will be steadfastly ignored.

But to say I wasn’t happy about this discovery was an understatement.

Until I saw these Resort 2012 trousers from Dsquared²Seems I’m not so square after all!

And yes, the trousers are progressing nicely, thank you very much.

The pockets and zip are in.  Final fit will happen in the next couple of days.  

I’m hoping to have them finished by the end of the week.
