I am working on my second pair of slacks from this pattern. I, too, cut a hole, while trimming seam allowances. It is pretty parallel and close to the side seam by the pocket, so i just sewed it up and hope for the best. Nice job.

Thanks everyone! I almost pushed my daughter's top off to cut another pair! :) I have several cuts of trouser fabric prewashed, ready to cut. More pants will be on the way!

Despite all of the challenges you encountered, you persevered and now you have a great fitting pair of pants. I am sure your next pair will go smoothly. Kudos to you!

I, too have managed to snip unwanted holes in garments I was sewing. My mantra now is: look before you snip! More important though is that you have accomplished a great fit. Congratulations!

These are great looking pants, and your perseverance paid off. So what about the hole?!! No one will see it and you have some nice pants now.

Yes, your pants are a great fit! I admire your tenacity to finish them despite the hurdles!

Oh no, a hole! I cut a hole in the last pair of pants I made, too. I did it with scissor tips while cutting off serger threads. Then the last time I tapered pants for my mom, I had part of the seam doubled up underneath and serged on top of it. Seriously??? But at the end of the day (a long day), your pants are fitting well and next time will be a piece of cake.

MRS Charisma, five stars for perseverance! You on your way to great fitting pants. I enjoyed reading your review.

I nearly cried too when I got to the part about the hole! Most of us have had a similar experience at least once and sometimes more! I agree with that you have the fit worked out, you can move on to make more pairs with far less work. Carry on!

You have achieved a great fit with these pants. Sorry to hear about the hole, but I'm sure you will go on to make many more pairs now that you have the fit all worked out.
