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.
