What are you most proud of? I am proud of the fact that I was able to work out how to alter the depth of the rise and change the shape of the legs without causing the seat to sag or the legs to have unnecessary folds. My legs are not straight up and down and I have misshapen knees from arthritis, so it is hard to show that on a photograph but they are very comfortable and sit smartly. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would say that it is a great deal easier to take the scissors to something which is free or doesn't cost much. So start on that type of garment first. I couldn't lose with these .. goodness.. $15.00 for a pair of jeans was amazing and if I had made a big mistake, I still could have used the material and still saved money, so there wasn't any risk. Have a go.
