I am so happy for you to have found a jeans pattern that works outstandingly well for you! I am also happy to know how great this pattern, which I had noted in my copy of Burda as one I should try, works great on an hourglass figure like mine. I will surely try this one.

Wonderful review. Your jeans look terrific.

Those pants look fantastic on you.

LOL - What a great review! I also have a pants resistant figure (notice, I always make dresses...) These jeans look superb on you and I can understand why you are so pleased with them! FABULOUS job! Woo hoo!

Kbenco thank you for reveiwing these pants - they look great on you. I was looking at this pattern but was put off by the giraffe legged model. Thank you for sharing your 'booty' adjustment too.

You are hilarious . . . and the pants look terrific!

Great review! The comment about the model and chocolate made me laugh. These look so nice! The fit is terrific & I love your pocket detail.

ohhh, those are perfection! Thanks for passing on the tip about pocket placement for those of us with well endowed rears.

Go euphoria! Great pants and you have reason to be euphoric with the great fit. Glad you made this discovery . . . I see many other such pants in your future.

You are funny. Great jeans.

Terrific pants! I'm really happy for you and looking forward to trying this pattern out myself.

I loved cabinbaby's version of these, but never thought to treat this pattern as trouser jeans (a style that I love myself). Thanks for a very informative and helpful review--your jeans look smashing!
4/16/09 11:34 AM
Not just a flattering, well-made pair of jeans, but an entertaining and helpful review too! :-)

Karen, your jeans look great!! I enjoyed reading every word of your wonderful review. So many great lines -- also I got a great snort out of your flared pants resistance -- I too have flared pants phobias, but due to late '60s, not '80s, bellbottoms! They must reemerge in 20 year cycles! Mercifully I'm so old now my memory has faded and they seem fresh and new again!

WOW - these are amazing! They certainly make you look like you do NOT have a pants-resistant figure! LOVED your review, it made my day! cheers

I am so happy for you, and any other seamstress, who finds their very own Flattering Pants Pattern. I wonder if these will work for me too..?

I mentioned this on SG, but I am just so proud of your final product. Karen, you look absolutely svelte in these. You are a tiny woman, but I know you haven't had good jeans luck before. Congratulations!
4/16/09 2:23 PM
Karen, wonderful review and fantastic looking jeans! You are so young and fit (though your self-deprecating remarks are always amusing!!) you truly deserve flattering jeans. Enjoy them!

Great fitting jeans - wonderful review with good pictures.
4/16/09 5:25 PM
Thanks for a great review. I love your jeans. They look lovely on you.

I saw your review earlier and didn't get to comment, so I went searching for the review tonight. Your pants have turned out PERFECTLY, such a nice FIT and so FLATTERING! You should make LOTS AND LOTS from this pattern. :o) You no longer have a pants-resistant figure -- ha!

I was completely unenthused about these pants based on the no-butt, no-thigh Burda model but wow you make them look awesome! And you've already figured out all the alterations for me ;) They are wow flattering on you and make your fanny look fab!

Great pants! Very interested to see your 'big bootie' adjustment. I don't tend to need in on Burda but have to do something on all others, so this was good to see, I add the same kind of wedge only at the crotch and it gives me all kinds of issues there, so I will give it a go.
4/19/09 3:02 PM
That's it. These are my next pants. Thanks for the terrific review.
4/21/09 9:30 PM
Woo those are awesome. I really think they are great and super flattering. I also thought the review was extremely helpful. I have full legs and although I always lean toward full leg pant patterns I won't be afraid of a full thight adjustment in the future. I so wish I got Budra style magazine.
