Pants sewing with the Pro

My new pants using techniques I learned from the Pro - Gentleman Jim of fine tailoring. His YouTube tutorial on how to add waistband, band-roll and clamp hook and eyes to trousers came in handy for these pants. I used my TNT Kwiksew 3625 pattern, the only thing I did differently was to reduce the leg width by 2" tapering  from hem to knee for a straight look. I wore the pants all day today with no band rolling or out of place, thank you gentleman Jim for the great tutorial. The pants were paired with the peplum top from previous post, and what a great combination...
Additional photos after the cut, the wrinkles were due to all day wear......

Enjoy!!!!
