What materials did you use? Wool and Cashmere mix with a washable lining

What are you most proud of? The lining! It was essential! The wool mix was so itchy during fittings that I was relieved I had already cut out lining!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try the course...Sandra is an amazing teacher and writer. I have gone and bought nearly all of her designs from vogue and can't wait to try them out!

Look good. How do the trousers fit? I like the color.

I took the trouser fitting class too and made adjustments to the patterns I had while I waited for the other included patterns to arrive.

Oh dear it seems like I can't just use the return key to start a new paragraph! What I was going to add was that using both classes meant that for the first time in my life I have a pair of pants the fit. I always have a problem with the back coming down whenever I sit down, and discovered that it was because I have a long back crotch depth. Making the adjustments make the back look big on the hanger, but fits my shape exactly. I love them! I'm about to wash them for the first time this morning so it'll be interesting to see who they cope in the wash!

Really nice. Would love to see the fit on your body.

I tried to take a picture, but it didn't look quite right...I need my daughter to take it for me. I'll get one posted once I've given the pants a wash.
