What are you most proud of? I sewed these up much faster than I thought and I even went through making a muslin. Ive never had good success with muslin fitting, mainly due to not knowing how to transfer my muslin changes to the actual pattern. But I took it slowly and figured it out as I went along. Its not that hard as I originally thought! After the fitting was done the construction of the pants went lightning fast and the finished piece is really something Im proud of. I am liking pant making more and more.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have to say that pants are easy garments to sew--something you would never expect, right? They may be a beast to fit but when it comes down to construction, they're even easier than a skirt with a facing and a lining. I believe it ia all due to their long seamlines that are few and far between. There are typically just two side seams, the crotch seam, and the waistband. Done! So if you've been daydreaming of making your own, just go for it!
