      Vielen Dank! :-)
      Das Hosenband/Hosenbund habe ich hier auf dem Markt gefunden und gleich großzügig eingekauft. Du kannst das auch im Internet kaufen, habe allein keine Ahnung was die richtige Bezeichnung für das Band ist. Viel Erfolg bei der Suche!

      Hi Joe, thanks for the compliment :-)
      If you are passionate about making garments you will achieve this look within a short time. I am curious about your first project here.

    Great work. I admire your advanced sewing and tailoring skills for men’s wear. I want to make a short pants for my husband before the hot weather hits us in December. This is inspiring.

    No need to wait as I have seen mass manufactured garments that sell and your work is clean and nicely top stitched so well worth for am man to invest in for their wardrobe! Plus it gives you more reson to go shopping for more inspiration to sew on!

    Martin! Having taught in a fashion design program you would have no problem passing any class. Nice work. I like your clean top stitching and attention to details! All 4 garments could be on a store rack so stitch on and your mistake is just fine! Loud is good when one needs to loud! Better to stand out then blend in! Cheers!
