take an other pair of trousers en redraw that what you see. If you have designed a normal pair of zippers. Otherwise contact me by mail, because I am not always here in this forum and I can imagine that you would like to continue working on them.

Kind regards,
With kind regards,

"Just started" and already designing your own patterns, and pants w/ fly, at that. Good going. I'm currently working through almost the same exact challenge. I'm going to be sitting down studying pants before I go to sleep tonight so I can wake up with a better idea of how to approach this fly!
