What are you most proud of? I now have six pairs of pants that I made, fit, and look good on me.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This class helped me tweak my Jeans pattern from another class. Kathy's motto cut large sew small best advice anyone can give.

Thank you Callivel, Pohutukawa and Sarg. I always feel I'm in good company when other sewers visit my page. Kathy's fit tips best so far.

What pattern did you use?

My pants started in Kenneth King's class Jean-ius Reverse Engineer your favorite fit. I copied a pair of Lee Jeans. The pockets were changed after taking Kathy's class. I also added elastic in the back waistband for comfort. Gives about 1/2 inch of ease.

The pants I made look exactly like this pair on this page.The legs and center back fits. It is the center of the crotch is too long.What should I do to make them fit>?

This is how I'd tackle this-The waistband needs to be dropped. Put on your pants pull them up, tie a thin piece of elastic around your waist, chalk a line to see how much and where to take off. Hope this helps
