Oh, I'm having such fun looking at all your SWAP garments. Everything looks so nice on you. I love that piped pocket on these capris. Very professional!

Nancy, they came out great in the white. Nice touch on the pockets using the fleshtone lining. I enjoyed the narrative in your Picassaweb-log

I must have missed your review on the city shorts...the fit and detail is awesome you did the welt pockets perfectly.

I relaly do like the KK method. It is easy once you get the hang of it. I've never done double welt pockets by the traditional method, though. It's on my list to try.

really nice shorts. the pocket looks great! I'm dying to know, do you like the KK method? Better or not than the traditional? You are so inspiring.

Good to see you've mastered the piped pockets. They're great and so are the shorts. I still have to practise the piped pockets :-(

Nancy, you are so pretty-- made even moreso by your beautiful clothing. I love the shorts, esp. the pockets-- I hope to have the skill to do these someday!

You just get better and better. These look like high end retail. Congratulations.

I did not make any other alterations. The crotch curve and back were fine. I think I may have cut the back a 42 and the front a 44 with the waist a 40, but I had to let out all the seams, so the back probably ended up being a 44 after all. The shorts sit below the waist, so I didn't need to make any sway back alteration there. I really like the way BWOF pants fit. Oh, the only seam I did not let out was the front since I had already installed the fly zip

*Great* looking shorts!

Nancy, these are great looking shorts !! Thanks for the tip on using the stretch lace to rectify the cutting boo boo. I have done that a few times myself. Apart from using a 40 waist, tapering to a 44 hip, did you have to make any other alterations eg, sway back and crotch length?
