Your pants turned out just perfect! I just pulled this pattern out and am ready to cut. I love yours! This pattern reminds me of pants you can purchase at Loft. :) Thanks for the helpful review!

Why oh why did i not read this carefully enough to find the BS tutorial that I so desperately needed! I even searched for it on BS and couldn't find it (I have always heard them called double welt pockets). AMEN to your comments about the instructions. I had the same issues. I know I've read your review before, so why did I completely ignore your sound advice? :) Anyway, I greatly appreciate the links, and will definitely use them next time. I think those back pockets had me ripping out the seams three times in order to get them right! I still love your pants, and your fit is fantastic.

I have this plus another alice + olivia pattern and want to buy more. They have more style to them. You did a fantastic job. I Love the welt pockets and the button closure on them is a wonderful idea of yours. They fit you perfect. I like the thought of sewing angels. ha ha

Fantastic job-I have stayed clear of pants for awhile now, but am inspired to give them another try. Love the wide waistband!

Great pants and great fit. I've been debating on this pattern and I think I'll have to give it a try. It should be suffuciently aged in my stash by now...

Another hobbit here...5'1"...it's encouraging to see such good results in a pant on a short person. Great job on the excellent fit.

Great looking pants. They look much nicer than your typical "jeans" and they fit wonderfully.

This is a great review (and you look fantastic in your new pants). I am also 5'2" and descended from hobbits. I think I will give these pants a try.
