They fit you well, the rear is very nicel fitted without any wrinkles, a major accomplishment! but yes they are too short. If you have more fabric you can make a faced hem and just take a 1/4" seam. You can also do this with bias hem facing or tape or petersham ribbon.

Great job on the pants. Thanks for the link to the pocket thread, also. I'd used this method (or at least similar) for a pair of Kwik-Sew pants, and it seems anti-intuitive initially. These look nice. Congrats on your pants.

Tara, there are your new pants. I see them now. (on the thread) :) Your pocket looks great. I am afraid I can't be of any help with the waistband. I have only made elastic waistbands a handful of times. Nice looking pants!

I used a drapey cotton that has been in my stash for a while. A cool print with an ancient egyptian them. :-) I didn't lengthen them, since I was just whipping them up to practice the pockets, but now I wish I had, 'cause these are a very nice, very wearable pair, lol. They aren't way too short though, and the hem is the selvedge (had to cut it that way due to the way the print was on the crossgrain). Now if I can only learn to put that waistband treatment in without getting the waistband all pulled out of shape! Off to the message boards for advice on that one...or feel free anyone to pm with advice on that. The pic of the pocket shows how my waistband got all twisted out of shape. lol..always something to learn!

Glad you mastered the technique Tara. What fabric did you use for the second pair, and did you lengthen them? I would of never considered this pattern, but your review has got me curious. They look great on you! :)

Hmm, another pattern to try out. I had stayed away from this pattern because the pants seemed so roomy. So I will do like you and go down a size to reduce the ease. Your pants look really nice. And I have mastered that pocket treatment with LH Cruise Pants and love it. Julie

Very nice pants - I like them more fitted as yours turned out.

I hadn't been very interested in this pattern, but I adore the way yours turned out. I actually prefer them a little slimmer. Beautiful!

I like these on you! Sleeker than the fuller look on the pattern model. Thanks for detailed review.

They are beautiful all around and look like they fit really well. I love rayon. IMHO the size is great. Could you trace between the two sizes if you want just a little bigger? I can't wait to try a Textile Studio pattern.
