What materials did you use? Stretch & non stretch denim from Hancocks

What are you most proud of? I am pleased with the fit. But I really like sewing the fine details that make them not look homemade.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It took me 3 muslins to get the fit right. When I watched the class again, I realized Angela said it took her 7 muslins. Don't give up! It's worth the effort.

Wow - so proffessional looking. What pattern did you use? You are "a little older" just as me, and I don't like Angelas very shortwaisted pattern. I bought a pattern in UK, from McCall, it is ok, but the measurements does not fit. I startes out with a size 24, and ended up with the smallest possible: 18, but thet are still too big, especially in stretch denim

Thanks Candour. I used Peggy Sagers pattern #3300 from Silhouettes (Lena's Jean). You're right, I don't have a figure to wear a waist below my belly button. I combined a couple of sizes and then tweaked muslins to get the fit the way I like it. And in the white pair I added a tummy panel as taught by Kathy Ruddy. I have learned I like stretch denim much better than non stretch.

Again...great job. Your topstitching details make them look off the rack...but with better fit.
