These are the same as my first pair, but I shorted the crotch depth to a measurement I got by measuring perpendicularly, instead of over my hip curve, and the front crotch extension is 1/5 of the front hips, instead of 1/4 (I made a mistake the first time round: 1/4 is for trousers and slacks).
The tighter fit takes a little getting used to, especially when you are used to wearing skirts.
The topstitching worked out better this time because I used doubled sew-all thread instead of topstitching thread.
The same stretch denim as last time.
Go far afield in wrap dresses, detailed jackets, and comfy separates for fall.
