  1. Are you sure you’re not being overly pernickety? Only the denim trousers would have made it into my rehash basket, the others looked wearable to me (though I do much prefer the spots post surgery.)

      1. Sometimes, too, it’s difficult to see what you see in pics. Which is good for taking and posting pics and having nobody see any ‘issues’. 🙂 And, as long as u r enjoying the surgery and not freaking out about things, than that’s the only thing that matters. It’s your stuff, you sewed it, you will wear it, go for it!
