I finially bought my self the SEW U book, and of course I flipped past the shirt& skirt and went straight for making the pants. I think they turned out pretty good. I got the wooly fabric for 'bout 4 bucks a yard, (not a steal, but the cheapest of the "nice stuff"), with these in mind. ( sorry about my face, that's the best editing my crappy program can do)

I don't think these pants really look like this as I'm walking down the street, like I'm getting feedback. If so- I'm sure someone will tell me tomorrow

I tapered the pattern for skinner legs, added some extra material cuz I guess I messed up some where in the waist band process. ooops! But when was the last time I tucked in my shirt anyway?
  I'm so happy with them considering they are the first I've made, I had to share!

Cute pants!  Am I allowed to make a suggestion?  I'm going to, w/o permission, but if you hate me for it, let me know and I'll delete it!

That extra fabric you added on the waistband....the first thing that jumps at me is that you didn't cut it in the same direction as the rest of the fabric.  It's particularly noticable b/c of the plaid/stripe pattern.

Even with that, though, I think they'd look a lot better if you just made that extra flap of fabric a little shorter.  They should be buttoning much closer to the zipper, and not nearly so close to the pocket. 

Your zipper looks MUCH better than my first zipper attempt, though!  Cheesy

I've wanted to get the Sew U book.....is it really helpful? I know alot of people find it like...the holy book of sewing and cloth-making. What's your opinion on the book? Do you like it?

Nice job! I would've thought they were store-bought.
I like that fabric.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

   I really DO love the sew U book ( by Wendy). I really hear her saying things I've read in other books, but like she's sitting down with me just - kickin' it and explaining it. I think the book went OOP, but is coming back in print this new(now) year. It's great. She totally instilled NOT cutting corners on anything. And it's the first time I've actually done so-

untill I got to the extra bit of waits band. Dishcloth queen... I know. I know. But you ever work so hard on a clothing project, so close to finishing, so siked about wearing it the next day? I just grabbed a scrap, and BOOM! done. As far as it being a larger piece, that's half nessicity (I made that much of a b0o-b0o) and taste.   
   And of course I don't mind suggestions/comments.  How else do you grow & learn? a different persoective is always good.
