We have a plum tree in our back garden. It's been a terrible harvest this year, but I did rescue enough to make a plum pie and some plum jam.

Longies Picture

The trim is a very pale pinky plum. The picture doesn't really do them justice but i am very pleased with them.

Berries Longies Finished

These have turned out beautifully. I am so pleased with them. I am on the netbook at the minute, so as soon as I have put the waist tie in I will update with a picture. They will then be lanolised.
