The trousers are coming along well. I think I should have cut a size 38, not 40, especially with the give of wool twill. The legs are baggy enough to have draglines. I'll take in the outseams and see how they look. The waistband seems to fit well, though I haven't sewn it to the pants yet. The pockets gape a bit so I'll rebaste them before attaching the waistband. Funny how something looks great flat but acts very differently on a 3D body.
Looking at the photos from my last post I realized I'd sewn the fly shield onto the wrong side. If I'd sewn on the waistband, the shield would have prevented the top of the zip from opening. Oops. Thankfully it was easy to fold down the top of the shield and solve the problem. I really didn't want to have to redo the topstitching!
