Wow!! These are great. You see these pants in stores all over the San Francisco Bay Area. To me, this is what sewing is all about. Seeing what you like, and making it yours in fit and fabric. Nice job!!

Thanks everyone. Do you have any ideas on how to reduce the leg width of this pattern?

Deepika, Lois Cutting's video tells you how to reduce the width of these pants. I have it and would be willing to loan it to you if you email we decide. Lois also tell how to put pocket these pants several different ways. she also makes a jump suit out of it in the video. You did a very beautiful job on these pants I like the details. you have becom very accomplished sewer.

I actually have the original Butterick pattern for thsoe pants and I have made them in a different view. I think I would prefer them in your no side seam version, so I am off to the store !!!

Thanks for the kind offer Linda but Karla is sending me hers. Hopefully I will be able to make these pants even better. I can't wait to see what's in the video.

Oh, Deepika, those are incredible. I love the look and your info on changing a pattern. I need to do that more often

These pants are really cute, Deepika--love the neat crease and the bow together. Did you use the narrower version of the Louise Cutting pants? I think they look fine in the width you've made, BTW--the slightly wider, cropped look seems to be very in this season.

thanks Skymom! I made these pants using my Burda 3216 pattern. Karla is sending me her Louise Cutting video in which Louise explains how to alter the one seam pattern to get a slightly narrower leg width. I love these pants. I am wearing them to work today and they are very comfy. I wonder why people dont like elastic waist pants ;-)

Cute detail! Isn't it great to create something new from an already proven pattern? :)

Deepika, you are just TOO much girl!!! No one would ever guess you are a beginner - the pants look awesome!

You are amazing! I can't believe you're a beginner! You must have been a seamstress in a previous life. Those pants are adorable!

Deepika, these pants are wonderful. As always, your ideas and work-womanship is inspiring!

I am totally impressed! These look great. I must get up my nerve to improvise my existing patterns instead of always running out and buying yet another one. You're inspiring!

Thanks again for your nice comments everyone. Rennie, you should also just do it. I am telling you no other garment I have sewn (even the difficult linen shorts) have given me so much satisfaction as these pants!

Deepika, these are adorable! You are going to be an expert seamster in no time - way to just dive right in! Okay, I am going to dig this pattern out - haven't made it in YEARS. First on the agenda are some low-waisted yoga-style pants to wear around the house. DH is sick of my 3X baseball tees that I wear as dresses. :-0
