Exciting project title, I know.
This pattern is meant for stretch leather but I wanted to try the pattern out first and plus I don’t have much use for leather pants these days. Maybe one day. I used a ponte and followed all the instructions, adding all the zippers and the front welt zipper pockets.
I interfaced the welt pockets and the zippers with a knit interfacing. It was hard to get the welt pockets to stay put while I stitched the zipper in place. I got it after a couple of tries and glueing all the layers down so they wouldn’t shift.
