What are you most proud of? The welted pockets. I did a practice welt first to see how the fabric reacted & used iron interfacing to get a really nice finish

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pants are not as difficult as everyone thinks, you just need to take the time to cut accurately & finish everything properly. If the fabric is off grain only by a bit, they won;t hang straight. It's also the stitching details that will make or break a pair of tailored pants. I had a nice pair of Country Road pants along side me to check & copy the finishes. I wish I had added belt loops as boys will be boys & wiggled them down so they slouched on the hip, instead of sitting nicely just below the waist.
