What materials did you use? Dark indigo stretch denim and dove grey topstitching thread

What are you most proud of? I'm really pleased how the pocket detail turned out. It was kind of a half-copy from a pair of my old jeans, but it has worked so well I'm now using it on all my pants!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always check the stretch of your fabric, it can make a huge difference to the finished project. Give it a go! It's a great course with heaps of fantastic tips you can use across all of your sewing projects.

WOW! Fabulous job on the top stitching! It looks like you even used the heavy, jean top stitching thread. Is that difficult to use?

Wonderful job! I LOVE the grey topstitching. It really makes them spectacular. Did you use heavy topstitching thread? I am making a pair of denim shorts and am now going to use grey for topstitching. Thanks for the inspiration.
