What are you most proud of? So pleased that I can now copy some of my favourite trousers, I have long legs and being able to extend the pattern to my requirements is wonderful. I had previously tried to copy some favourite trousers by completely deconstructing them to make a pattern but as I learnt on the Jeanius course this makes the material warp and the resulting trousers were way too big. I used the other half of the trousers to make the pattern for the Jeanius course and hey-presto, the new trousers fit perfectly. Kenneth is a great teacher, the course was easy to follow and I learnt so much.

Hi Soffie, thank you. It was a stretch twill. I've washed and worn them lots since making them and they still feel great. Do you make trousers?
