What materials did you use? For these trousers, I used a cotton/lycra mix with just a tad of stretch. It proved to be much better than the previous cotton sateen trousers I made as these did not 'bag out' (due to having less lycra in the mix).

What are you most proud of? Love the colour and the fabric - much more forgiving than the cotton sateen I used in the previous pair. And I forgot to mention too, I drafted a 4 piece waistband unlike Kenneth's 1 piece-I like to have a centre back seam in my waistband so there is no possibility of 'gaposis'!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? View the entire video and read all the class comments from participants and responses from Kenneth prior to commencing. He really is a genius ! I have written to Crafty asking when his next course will be - maybe if we all did that, they will enlist him to do another one......we need more garment sewing courses!

Great construction work on these jeans. You have inspired me to make a pair and complete Kenneth's class.

Absolutely GORGEOUS double welt pockets on back! I actually said, "wow!" When I saw them! Great job on the front pockets, too! Love the color! I bet you get lots of compliments when you wear them.
