These look real good! I have just begun to copy my clothing. Starting with a craftsy class.

Great job! Hurray for your success! Ive been following the new postings on “no pattern used”. It’s exciting to see adventurous people making their own. One suggestion I might make is to extend the pocket all the way to the zipper seams - like a full, wide facing with a dip lower to the chosen pocket depth. I’ve seen this technique used in a lot of nicer RTW - the back of the pocket extends all the way across. “Tummy Flattering”. It makes sense that it would smooth your tummy area. If the blue backing that shows is put onto it so it becomes part of the unit, it should prevent any pulling because there won’t be any resistance on it. You could even use a fabric that has a very small amount of stretch. Cheers, Sewing Canary

Your pants look great! I just got done ripping apart capris that fit me well and added legs for pants to the paper version. I have done this before with success, but since my body has changed decided it was time to do it again. Thanks for your review!

Sometimes copying a favorite garment is the best way to get something we love. Your pants look great. Thanks for the reminder that we don't have to be stuck using a paper pattern.
