|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? I used a cotton lycra fabric as these are firm fitting capris so I needed some stretch for ease.
What are you most proud of? The whole look and replicating the exact trousers I love so much. Kenneth's take on zippers and his finish on the waistband ends was the best and one that I will continue to do now. I am also pedantic when it comes to finishes and believe that the inside of a garment should be just as good as the outside.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch all the videos til the end before commencing along with reading all the comments under each section (you may get some further tips or the questions you have may already be answered by Kenneth)...... Make sure all your grain lines are straight and use the coloured pencils Kenneth recommends as they really are the best for tracing onto fabric. I can't wait for Kenneth's next class on Craftsy!
