Thanks for posting. Well, there is no time like the present to learn to take out that tape measure and sort it all out ahead of time, or make a muslin. Even for the crotch. Notice the guy in the picture is very tall and thin, and who knows if they pin the pants in the back to make them fit better before snapping the picture. For seams finishes, one word, serger. Thanks for posting. Nice to see a young man who wants to enjoy such a great hobby. If you are wearing a real Panama hat in the picture, I really am jealous!

Thanks for your comment, Judi. While I appreciate what a serger is capable of doing, for most clothing I prefer the look and feel of a clean, flat-felled seam. I suppose it doesn't make that much difference on sportswear, but I need the practice. I do all my projects on vintage (pre-1960) machines, but I do have a serger (a White Super Lock 503) but haven't tried it out yet. You see, I have this thing about plastic... PS: It's not Panama grass, just humble straw.
