What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't choose super heavy weight fabric for your first pair if you are an inexperienced sewer.

Beautiful job. Such perfectly straight stitches and the embroidered pocket is very pretty.

Thanks Lynne, I wore them to a party this last weekend and got comments on them. One gal asked where I bought them, said they looked like NYDJ jeans but she couldn't ID the pocket

Those just look great; how hard was this class? Would you recommend it for a beginner? I am really struggling with the pants fit by Sandra Betzina but I really like the pants she has for the class so I just have go to figure it out! Thanks

Hi Shelly...Kenneth is a wonderful teacher, he goes through every step. I think you should dive in!! Use some less expensive fabric for your first pair. You will learn many fundamentals. Being able to ask questions as you go along is invaluable. You can do it!
