On trousers the normal inlays are always on the back panels, but you know when I'm trying out a new pattern or using a muslin on a figure I think will be tricky to fit, I whack a bit on the topsides just in case. Plus I whip up a basic fly so I know how it will sit with a fly in.

Great idea, appreciated!  :) I am literal minded so when say inlay the back, I think not to do the front. Maybe even for the first few different fabrics do this, as not like will be any significant additional amount.

The book on just trousers supposedly be here Sunday, then can check the fly method.

You don't need to figure out the back panels by yourself, Peterle really did give clear instructions.

On the paper pattern? I don't recall seeing, only for the fabric. Regarding those instructions, was not clear to this mentally deformed and damaged (Autism and two TBIs).

Adriel, my dear fellow, you only need to widen the fronts at the crotch-line. This is an easy operation and the instructions for doing it were pretty thorough.

There should have been enough inlay cut onto the original muslin to allow for all these fitting issues. If there isn't just sew pieces on and be done with it, it's only a model for the pattern.

Took a break to clear my head, lot of family drama causing distraction. Sometimes feel like shutting of the mobile and ignoring it all.

No inlay on the front panel in this system, if all then onto the wool and add 2cm inlay front and back? Looking like will have to figure out how to modify the back pattern myself.

There are, as you'll know, a lot of costume seamstresses/seamsters on the old YT, but this one below is one I like watching. She hand sews everything in an effort to preserve authenticity and it's nice to watch.

It pokes a bit of a hole in the 'Americans don't hand-sew' remark. She also seems a very pleasant character. Here she is making a shift/chemise from linen.

Around 2010 Burton's (now part of some 'group' or other) engaged in some marketing to bring out a 'heritage' line which used inspiration from the clothing in its archive. A snippet was on the documentary British Style Genius.

It seemed to absolutely vanish within a year. They are now (and have been for a while) just a variation of Topman and Zara. H&M is even better than Burton's, which is a travesty really.

Speedy, accurate cutters in that 1970s Burton's though, right?

You have received pages of good advice from two experienced people in your other thread.
Starting a new thread is not the solution.
Autism is not an excuse to behave rudely to people who have given their time and expertise.
