What are you most proud of? Sorry for the bad photos, the fabric is chocolate brown and the stitching is black so it is hard to see. I most enjoyed copying the topstitching details from my original pair. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't skip any of the steps. View the whole project before you commence, because ready-to-wear construction methods are very different from normal sewing methods, and are often done in a different order to what we are accustomed. Fit, fit and fit. Measure, measure. Be as accurate as you can, it will pay off. You will learn so much from this!!! I did!!!
