These pants are really nice and the fit you have achieved is superb. It would be easy to widen the leg next time but it's too bad you have to do it - I agree the illustration is quite inaccurate re the overall proportions on this one.

Wow - they look great! Thank you for this review, and the inspiration for fall sewing.

I can only dream of pants that fit as perfectly as these fit you. Amazing that you could do this without alterations. Very inspiring!

Terrific job. That is a rear view to die for. I think Nancy Erickson must have drawn a wonderful crotch curve for her pants pattern.

Reggies Mom said...
Love these. I, too, can only dream of such a great fit. I imagine you can wear almost any style with that figure of yours. Lucky you!

Wonderful job--they look RTW--the slacks should match with anything and be a real wardrobe builder.

Great fit! You should be very pleased!! I can't believe you got this great fit with no alterations - lucky you.

Your rear view is perfect, exactly what it should look like. Brava! The illustration does not look like they would be a tapered pant, but they are. Misleading illustrations in the independents is very disapointing.

I must echo the other comments. Beautiful fit and to think that no alterations were required! Amazing.

I think you under rate your skills. You certainly have the "touch" for sewing. I look forward to seeing your future projects.

These pants look great on you. I bet you're already able to wear these, given your Montana location!

C'mon. You bought these, right? They look great! Nice fit. Mock fly zipper? Awesome!

your pants and jacket are beautiful. I am planning on ordering these patterns now!

Your review will probably sell lots of patterns! We should be so lucky as to look as good as you do in these pants. I've never sewn a mock fly and wonder how good the instructions are and how difficult this would be.
