What materials did you use? Used Material that had been intended for curtains long ago and was still in my stash.

What are you most proud of? I am most satisfied that I could work through three muslins making changes to each that kept moving me toward what I really wanted for fit. I also feel much more confident with construction, so that I will not mind investing in better fabric to make some real keepers. I made changes for Sway Back, Flat Butt, Lower Crotch in Back, Extra in front at the top of the inseam. Also changed the shaping of the shaped waist band, Took out some of the Side Seams and Narrowed the Legs from just below thighs down to hem. I sewed each change in the muslin to try on before changing the tissue pattern.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just keep working on it. Somewhere in the second muslin, I wondered if I would ever accomplish what I set out to do, but being able to ask questions and sleep on it and try again really did work out! I did most of my fitting in the evening, as that's when I am largest around, and I knew if it fit then, it would be comfortable anytime. i like fabric that has some body because it disguises to some extent those "features" of me that I do not want to emphasize.

they really look GREAT. I just hope I am as successful with mine - alas I cannot get the video to play properly at the minute so am feeling very frustrated! but what I have seen of it is seems a good instruction video. If it enables people to get a pants pattern as good as yours has turned out it must be good! Love the material too!

Your capris fit gorgeous. I have to do almost the same alterations on my pattern and I would be happy about achieving a fitted pant like yours.
