*Oh* Thankyouthankyouthankyou for your excellent review! I just traced this out yesterday and plan to get fabric cut out today. These look so great on you!!! I have a sway back and round bottom, too so I'll try similar adjustments. I'm just so scared to try pants again. The last few I've tried have been total disasters. But they were "Big 4" patterns. I've never tried Burda or Ottobre. Keep your fingers crossed for me! =D

Great pants! You've inspired me to try this pattern too. This was a really great issue. Hope this patterns works as well for me.

Because of your last review I searched on the web until I found an issue of this publication....but had to get the next one, too. I haven't made the capri's yet, but do intend to make several pair over the winter if they fit me as well as they do you. Thanks !! I'm saving your review for reference while making mine.

Your pants are great. I would live in them too! I like the contrast wasitband--its like wearing pretty underwear--nobody sees it but you know its there.

Thanks, everyone. kkkaty, I wear this mostly with low-heel or flat sandals, mostly slides like this or this.

cute! What kind of shoes will you wear with these? I ask because I recently bought a similar pair but I am not sure what to wear them with.....

These pants look great on you! They're on my list of things to sew, but I haven't gotten to them yet. :-( Great job!

On your last review I commented that I would have to find the Ottobre issue. I did, and the second one too! Pity one day is too short for packing and making shorts, otherwise I would sew this one right away, based on your review. Looks great, thanks for the review.
