I spent an evening the other day examining fly front trousers to work out how they do the fly front. Amazingly (or not so amazing actually) all 12 pairs were done the same. None of my sewing books, or the websites I looked at, sewed them that way. Very interesting that they would all do it in a non-industry way. I did two test flys, and made a pair of trousers, and the method I had determined worked very well. Although - there were some sections I could not work out the exact order, but it worked well anyway, it just means there might be an easier way.
The trousers.... they were empty at the time weren't they?
