How to shape a trouser leg

Here's how the useful folks at the Cutter and Tailor forums followed up on the topic I posted about here last: How tailors used to make (and shape) trousers. Highly recommended reading for those of you who want the good old stuff. Especially note the impressive results Jeffery Diduch gets with pant-leg shaping right here, right now. Thanks for posting the pix, and doing the work, Jeffery!

There's also a new clip from the book's DVD posted on YouTube, thanks to Craftside, a blog devoted to the craft publications by my book's publisher, Creative Publishing International; lots of good stuff there… Check it out!
