What are you most proud of? The fit in my rear! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and keep working on the muslin. I probably changed the back crotch 5 times, taking a little more at a time, but it worked. I have NEVER had a pair of pants fit my rear as well as these. REALLY makes a difference in comfort! The denim did not distress much, or maybe I just did not get aggressive enough. Also, I should have made them a size smaller. Next time I will try 2% Lycra. 4% feels like too much stretch.
