What materials did you use? outer fabric is a twill, lining is a quilting cotton.

What are you most proud of? These are full lined and the outer piece and the lining pieces fit together very well. I also like the mock flat felled seams I did for the inseams.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? 1. Be sure when you print the pattern that your printer is setup for NO scaling or 100% scaling. 2. Sew the back and side pockets to the individual front and back pieces before sewing the center seams. 3. Interface the top of the bodice to reinforce where the buttonholes will be. 4. Make the casing 1 inch rather than 7/8 inch.

These remind me of the pants my then-toddler daughter used to wear in the 70s. The hat is 'the icing on the cake'. Great fabric choices. Homemade is better than the rest.
