Nice looking pants!! I've never tried this brand of patterns before, but like the look of these. Thanks for the great review.

These look great on you! It is time to make my own that have been sitting traced but not cut out! The best way not to get pants that are too big is really to fit as you sew. Every fabric fits differently. I made a pair of jeans from my tnt pattern and the denim was pretty stretchy and I ended up taking them in about 2" overall. Sew the interior , ie details and inseam and pin fit the outseam and you'll end up with less of a surprise when they are done.

You did such a great job on these. They are the type of pants/jeans I would look for at the store.

Great, great, great trousers... very ready to wear type of look. Bravo. They fit you wonderfully. Though you think they are too big, I think they have this relax fit that remind me of the very expensive Naf-Naf jeans.

They look great to me, too. I love the cut, and you did an excellent job on them. The Gap couldn't do any better. If you would like them a little snugger, is this a fabric you could toss in the dryer when just damp to shrink a little?

Your pants look great to me. I think fit is a personal thing. Some may like their trousers very fitted, while others prefer more of a relaxed fit. They look well constructed!

They look like they fit very well! Your pants make me consider purchasing this pattern.

They look great. I can't tell that they are too big from the picture -- the fit looks good.

Thanks for your review! I ordered this pattern last month and have been itching to make some pants from it.

These pants fit you perfectly. Good job on the alterations and also on letting the rest of us know what to do with this pattern to achieve such a great fit.

They look great! Possibly taper the hip and legs a big. The rest fits great in my opinion. I think the 'largeness' you are seeing is in the bottom of the pants.
