What are you most proud of? They fit really well and the topstitching is mostly professional looking.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would start with a lighter fabric that I did - my denim is really heavyweight and while it did all go together well, it would have been easier to try new techniques on a fabric I was already comfortable with. That said, I think my jeans will last years!!
