Before I started the front pockets I folded the belt loops and sewed edges down.
After sewing the pocket pieces to the front, and the front yokes in place. I serged them together, the serged the side seams.
After seeing the side view I am getting more and more exited to finish it.
I also sewed the button holes for the elastic I am adding on the inside. I placed them 1 1/4 inch from the edge, with the 5/8 inch seam allowance it will be in about the center of the waistband.
