Copying a pair of pants (5)

I'll continue showing the steps of constructing these pants. The pockets of the waistband are done. Because the fabric is a bit "beefy", I made the flap not of two layers of fashion fabric, but used black cotton for one side. The welts with the layer of ribbon in between had enough thickness already, so it was important to reduce bulk. I'm hoping to finish these pants this weekend.

Then it's time for something in another color. I've a feeling that I've had black thread on my sewing machine for ages now. This morning I was in a fabric shop, which had the first few bolts with spring fabrics. Couldn't resist to buy a lovey cotton for a shirt with shades of light blue and mint green.



  1. I love seeing yur progress and how perfect you are with every detail. Love the new fabric, too.

  2. These pants are quite intriguing! I can't wait to see them finished!
