Very cool!

What I like about this thread is it shows a real appreciation for how a garmet is constructed. And in the long run understanding how things are put together is a very worthwhile thing for all of us.

I'm sure you will adjust your 'angry pockets' in the next pair. In the meantime changing the buttons to a color that matches the fabric will probably eliminate the 'angry' effect.

I thought the second pair was looking pretty good. Take a hard look at the zipper length, and front rise in the next pair. It seems to me that you have your waistline located correctly. But the area under the zipper/fly is not quite what it should be. I can't tell if you should use a slightly longer zipper next time or if you should simply shorten the front rise a bit. In any case a tweak is in order.

Very impressive second effort!

Thanks for the feedback. I agree with you. For whatever reason I have found the rise and the fit through the hip area to be the hardest thing to get right at the pattern stage and I keep having to make changes once things have already been cut and partially constructed. Generally the feedback I get is that the finished product looks good, but I am aware of all these little (and big) things that need to be improved - of course it's still very useful when someone like yourself points out something like the above.

Can hardly wait for the next installment. I vote for a pair of cords. The wale matching ought to prove interesting.

Thanks - I'm hoping to try a pair of cords soon when I switch into a 'fall/winter' mindset. I hadn't even thought of wale matching - but I am going to try a pretty bold pattern for my next pair, so it will be good practice.

Impressive. That looks like a lot of fun to do. I'd like to try it myself, but I don't have nearly enough time. Keep us updated with your future projects!

Thanks for the inspiration! My next hobbie project will be to make me a pair of pants.
