My last make for 2014 was squeaked in right before Christmas.
Thought the plaid flannel matched nicely in the front (photo below).... and the back. Didn't worry about the sides, these will only be worn at home.
first pair I'd made him last month. Also took the time to make copious notes on my pattern about how I put the pocket in. Thought the top-stitching and bar tacks on the front turned out well.
I was in such a hurry to 'whip' these up that I failed to
double-check/triple-check something as rudimentary as the front/back.
I'm also thinking they are so baggy in their comfortableness that that helps
them work being worn backwards... but I really think I have a very sweet, considerate husband.
