What materials did you use? Dad's old pants, reused the zipper and a vintage gauze for pocket lining

What are you most proud of? self-drafting this pattern, they took me one long Clint Eastwood western to finish them. I reused the zipper from the old pants and only added a new wooden button, and pocket lining fabric. The fabric was a little short so I had to sew a few pieces together matching lines for the pattern pieces, but over all it was a fun project

What advice would you give someone starting this project? self drafting boys pants are particularly easy because you don't have to get them perfectly right. I took a pair of his old jeans and used it as a guide for the pattern, making the legs a little narrower and adding 1/2 around the whole thing for seam allowance. I did modify a little bit adding an elastic waistband and increasing the whole size since the jeans I used were already too small for him.
