It's nearly time for the Royal Adelaide Show and Matilda is competing with the school show team, exhibiting a wether. (Named Bailey)

The students have a lot of fun. They stay in Adelaide over night and have some free time to attend the showing the evening. A uniform is required, the school supplies shirts, vests and ties. The students are expected to bring their own dress boots and jeans.The jeans need to be neat, no holes, and preferably dark denim. Their overall score takes into account the neatness of their dress. Last year I made Tilly Calamint jeans , a free pattern from Mood. They were okay but definitely needed more work than I was wiling to give to a pattern to try again.
This year, we decided to try McCall's 5894 which appears to be OOP but still readily available on eBay and Etsy.
Matilda then requested to remove excess fabric, from below the knee, on the inside leg as the were 'swishing' together.
