These were so challenging y’all,! I had the sizing just right from the first pair I sewed but this time I wanted a zipper fly. I bought the zipper exapansion pack from True Bias. It was only six bucks!
The fabric is this strange Jade twill from Nick of Time Textiles. $6.95/yard as of this posting. It has this sheen to it that I wasn’t expecting but it is a solid, quality fabric.
I was pretty unpleasant to be around while I was figuring out the instruction for the zipper fly. I just could not really understand it at first and just completed each step in blind faith. I’m glad I did cause it came together in the end. I am sure that if I did it like six more times I would be a pro, but I am not in a hurry to go through that again!
