Do these pants make my butt look... great?

Pants project done! Two muslins later with a few adjustments here and there and I now have the perfect pattern for a high waisted cigarette pants.


You won't be seeing me buying jeans any time soon, Mr Levi's.

  5. Thanks for all the comments! I used some kind of dark purple/gold metallic synthetic fabric I found for $6/yard. I gather I'll be hand washing these.
    And yes, there is a zipper on the left side.
