Just a straightforward make to learn and use piping. Hooray for new techniques! The waistband is a bit too tight on me, so for my next version I will research how to modify waistbands. The thighs fit perfectly. Sewing really does make me learn more about my body and how fitting should work. Also I used decorative buttons sent from a friend – it works perfectly as they match my piping and lining as well.
I wrote more in my sewing journal here: http://cathywu.com/journal/treadling/2013/07/11/piped-colette-iris-jane-buttons/
