  1. Hi I’m wanting to make the Chanterelle pants with the pockets from view A on view B. I clicked on the link which I thought would take me there, but it only talks about fitting. I’ve already made one pair of View B and want to make my second pair slightly different. Also, the fabric I want to use is cord which has a slight stretch widthways, but with a good return. I note that you recommend fabrics without stretch, do think it might work? Many thanks for your advice!
