I've now caught up with my schedule for sewing these men's pants. The Ex is taking my car for its annual test at the end of the week, so I should be able to fit them when he drops it back. (if "still being friends" means that I still sew his trousers, then I figure it also means he still deals with my car)
Since my photography skills are decidedly dodgy, the fabric looks rather grey. In fact, it's a dark olive green. The bound pocket is not as neat as would have liked, but I ended up having to do it several times anyway, so I figure that's as good as it's going to get.
The next bite is the fly area. I always hated installing zipper fly front, but last time I needed to install one I found a great video tutorial from Hot Patterns on YouTube. I will admit that watching the tutorial it didn't seem to make sense, but when I played it while I was actually doing it, pausing the video as I completed each step, it worked, and was undoubtedly the best zipper fly front I've ever done.
I won't say that I'm an expert now, but I've saved the video to my I-pod so I can repeat the same process every time I need to install zips like this. Hopefully I will reach a point when I don't need to watch the video every time.
