These are the first pair of pants I’ve ever sewn. I made them straight from the pattern, cutting my size with no other alterations since I wasn’t sure what alterations I’d need for this first attempt. I’m surprised at how well they fit! I’ll be making a few alterations with my next pair since the waistband gaps a bit, there seems to be a bit too much fabric in the crotch, and they’re not as snug at the back of the thigh as I’d like. But, overall, I couldn’t be happier with my first pair of hand-sewn pants.

Denim, jeans button, two different colors of thread (out of necessity!).
