I appreciate your reviews of this pattern. I've traced it but have been afraid to take the plunge. I'm sure I'll know this–––what is RPL???

Wow! I'm impressed. Your pants look awesome from every angle. If I could get that flawless look from the back, I'd be as high as a kite. Congratulations on achieving the holy grail of sewing; a perfect crotch curve. (Your cute daughter's crotch curve looks pretty good, too. ;-) )

Julia, you pants look great and your timing is wonderful - I'm planning to use this pattern for Shannon Giffords upcoming class to make a pants muslin. Thank you for sharing your experience and providing so much detail. Julie

Julia, these are BEAUTIFUL. As I am in the middle of pants of which I have chosen to turn a blind eye to some whiskers I bow down to you in awe. Congrats!

Great looking pants! I'm glad to see you reviewing this pattern as I was considering tracing this one off but was concerned as to whether the pants were too wide (based on others' comments), although I like wide legged pants. I think I will give it a go! Your pair looks great on you...
