Very nicely done. Your pants look as great on the inside as on the outside. Terrific job.

Hello Kay, Great pants and lovely workmanship. I have V7881 and have been meaning to try it. You have inspired me. If you ever come to Ottawa, visit Darrell Thomas Fabrics on Bank Street. Beautiful designer fabrics! Regards, Gaylene

Incredibly informative! These look great inside and out. Great idea using the salvage to avoid a line.

Beautiful pants and what a great suit with your lovely jacket. Wonderful details. I think I have this pattern too, and I haven't tried it either. I think I'm convinced.

This is a great pattern -- I've made it several times. I haven't tried the couture waistband techniques, but after reading your review, I want to.

Beautiful sewing! I'll have to try the couture waistband too. You are very right that some fabrics don't ease all that well. My last pair of these needed darts because RPL doesn't like to ease.

Kay, you convinced me that I "need" this pattern. If not for fit, then for the instructions. They look wonderful, outside and inside and a perfect match to your jacket.

Your actual stitching always LOOKS so awesome and the inside looks as good as the outside of the garment. Thank you for being such a good example. jw

Ahh ha ! You chose the pants at the end. Those are great. I really like how the waistband is finished inside. It looks very sleek and professional. The fit is excellent. It is surprising to see this back without darts. The effect with the jacket is very business and superb. Those pants were a great choice.

Such BEAUTIFUL pants, which look SO nice on you. All of your finishing details are perfection and a joy to see. I really love the finish on that waistband. The FIT couldn't be any better.

Thanks so much for your review: inspiring, professional and so helpful. You are stunning in the photo with the jacket! Can you please tell me advise me - you chose to underline - my 2 questions are: - (1) Why? vs lining & (2) To how far down did you underline?

Oh my! I just rechecked back and saw that you had edited your review answering my questions, but I hadn't realized at the time. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Wow, you don't need another pants pattern: this one is perfect for you. Thanks for the commentary about underlining; I think I'll have to try this.
