Karen, I got the powerstretch mail order from Mill Direct Textiles. Their stock changes regularly so its worth checking from time to time. I haven't found anywhere in Oz that sell it but if you find a supplier, please let me know. Good luck and hope to see you on a mountain sometime! ...Treefrog

You've given me the confidence to go ahead with some ski thermals myself now! I'm in Oz too, but never sure of which fabric to buy and where from. Where did you get the lighter powerstretch from and what exactly is it called? Cheers, Karen

great job! I would be hard pressed to tell which pair was which! And I think the blue is quite pretty.

Fabulous work, and so you should be chuffed! I admire anyone who can copy a RTW pattern and, especially this one, because it has shaping. You will definitely get a great deal of mileage from this pattern. Well done!

Another should consider selling your pattern on Etsy or Ebay. I think you have a winner there.

Great job. They look like they are moving without a body in them.

Those are great looking pants. Congrats on copying from a real pair, I've yet to try that!

You did a great job! I can see plenty more of these in your future. No need for one pair to last ten years. Instead ten new pairs every year. :)
