Stream 1: Cutting and Fitting Stream

Stream 2: Sewing Part 1: Back (Top and Bottom, Back Waist, Pleat, Pockets. Also assembled pieces for the Part 2 stream: Chest Pockets, Hip Pockets, Sleeves.)

Stream 3: Sewing Part 2: Front (top and Bottom, Pockets, Belt, Sleeves, Zipper, Collar) This was an EPIC long 6 hour stream. Hopefully I'll be able to download it and edit it in to chunks soon. For now, feel free to fast forward!

Notes: I decided to go with a size 14 as I usually make size 14 in Closet Core Patterns. I checked my total rise, sleeve length and this is in the Cutting video. I'm not making too many modifications beyond customizing them for gardening. I want them to fit over my clothes, not too be too hot, have full coverage and some protection from pokey plants.

The sizing was perfect- but if you want to wear over clothes, I recommend going up a size, except in your sleeve length and inseam length.

I love how these came out. They're going to be so useful and I'm almost giddy at having the reinforced cordura sleeves!!
