Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? cotton, but not a very thin sort, I bought this material to make pants, but as It was lying on a shelf for a long time I decided to use it for this project.

What are you most proud of? except for them being to wide at the waist and legs, they are better than the last couple of pants I made.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Sandra's advice. Thanks Sandra and I hope to get some further advice.

I think they look pretty good (compared to the ones I tried to made the last couple of years), they are to wide in the waist I think, I know they are supposed to hang about an inch lower than my real waist so they might even be alright. They are way to wide on my legs though.

Compared to what I tried to make in the past they look pretty good to me. They are very wide at the legs though. And I see diagonal wrinkling at my legs. I always thought I had a flatseat problem, but after what Sandra said about baggy seats, I thought that could also be the problem because I always had lots of wrinkling under the butt, I did the alteration for the baggy seat and so far it looks a lot better than previous attempts before this class. I'm even hopeful I might get it right this time.
