What materials did you use? Elasticized fabric & quilting cotton for contrast

Finally all done except for the hemming which will be done after it has been fitted. The drape is different due to the qualities of the fabric. Although both has elastic / spandex content the original is a softer fabric. For the new pants I've added 2 pockets in the front, changed the fly zipper facing direction and incorporated a straight cut styling. I've removed the welt pocket from the back as really women don't use back pockets especially in a dress pants. But I've kept the darts at the back for shaping. These styling are done after I've lifted the essential stitching lines from the original garment. Without Kenneth's help this would not be possible. Thanks so much.

Great Job, I love the contrasting fabric in the inner-waistband!

I love how you've been able to change the original to fit your style. And thank you for incorporating the photo of the walking foot with the comment about spandex. A lightbulb just went off in my head! Great job!
