I started off very cautiously, terrified of screwing them up and wasting so much great fabric. This was one of those projects that, as I looked at all the pieces cut and skim read the instructions, really filled me with fear and self-doubt. I wasn't sure if my sewing skills were up to the challenge. I even got that slightly deflated feeling as I began to think that maybe I'd been a bit too ambitious.

But au contraire, my friend! I am now feeling very smug and suitably grooooovy in my new, purple, corduroy, high-waisted, wide-legged, smokin' hot trousers.
And the best part? The common problem associated with high-waisted pants such as these...? No camel toe...!
