What are you most proud of? Not much here - although the pants fit and feel better than the first try. I have now worn these for a couple of days and I have definitely added TOO MUCH to the front. Probably 1" or 1 1/4" would have been enough. I turned over the front and a further 3/4" and stitched it down. NOT glamorous and NOT good technique but I can wear them with a top not tucked in. I will now start on the next iteration. I would not bother with the pockets next time! They are not big enough to be useful and are an extra bit of fluff where I don't need any more! perhaps I will try pockets in the side seam for the next pair.

Bevaau, These pants are looking pretty good to me. Esp. the back and sides. I am looking forward to starting my pants.

I think they actually look pretty good. Especially like the way the back hangs.

Thanks all for your comments. My Sewing Guild group has a challenge in progress - make a t-shirt from a (specified) Kwik-Sew pattern and then create an outfit around it. So - my next task is to 'create' the next pants from 'proper' fabric' that will become part of that outfit. The only thing I have to do now is find the time!!!
