Kuala Lumpur, Ma...
Ahhhhh I finally learnt how to sew a decent zipper fly! Thanks to this pattern from the Japanese Female magazine I was asking Nahoko about :-)
Sewed a size M but took it in a bit, and changed the waistband to a thin one (a fiddly process I shall never repeat again). Overall it turned out okay I guess. My aim with this pattern was to learn how to assemble trouser pattern pieces together (a challenge made even more challenging when one can’t read a single Japanese word lol). I do however really like the crotch curve on this pattern! :-)
For the button I used a tiny gold-colored button I found in an old haberdashery. Glad I can wear these capris either tucked in or not.
