Breeches, part 2

The breeches are finished! Entirely handstiched (but one seam), so it took some time. There were so many small details: cover buttons, stich buttonholes, inset a gusset at the back, etc. I needed to focus in order to achieve a perfect fit at the front. Fashionably tight fit over the thighs and knees but a loose seat to enable dancing. The breeches turned out rather well, if I may say so. (But don´t look too closely at the crooked stiches on the lining and at the back….)
