What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't cut into the original pattern. Trace it off and work from that. Yes it is a pain but it is worse later if you don't! Once you have cut into the paper pattern it is hard to determine where you might need to alter if you don't fully understand the concepts. (And why else would you be doing this course?). For example: Initially, I cut a smidge from the back crotch but later needed to add it back as this was not a correction I needed.

Una - those really fit you well; I just completed my pair to night and I am so happy; they fit so well in the crotch - I will need to finish up the waist band and hopefully it will turn out as nice as your's - nice job!

Thanks Shelley. I look forward to seeing yours. I have just started watching the pants construction lessons and am looking forward to having a nicely constructed, well fitting pair of pants!

Thank you Neusa. I have made one pair of pants, but have put on a abit of weight so am going to lose it before I make anymore! Sandra gives lots of advice and it was hard to decide which alterations I needed, but I got there in the end. Good Luck!
