Yay for skiing, yay for your nice, cozy fleece pants. They will be perfect for the outdoors in winter.

Looks good ! Where did you get the fabric? I made 2 pairs of knickers for x-country skiing over 20 years ago & still wear them (1 wool & 1 heavy stretch corduroy), so am sure the $$ for fabric is worth it!

Thanks for your nice comments. In response to NancyZL- I bought the fabric from The Rain Shed in 2009.

Sounds like you made the perfect pair of ski pants! Hope you get lots of pleasure skiing in them. And many many thanks for your very helpful review.

I figured out how to add an additional link to show the articulated knee.

Thanks for a wonderful review! I see this pattern isn't available at PR; you've made me want to get my mitts on a copy! NancyZL - Mill Direct Textiles (NAYY) carries the Polartec fabrics

What great ski pants - I'm glad they turned out with just the right warm factor. I have skiing envy right now =)

Excellent, great design feature on this pattern with the articulated knees. Sounds like these worked out perfectly for you!

As a hiker/snowshoer/bike commuter, I totally agree about the simpler elastic waist and articulated knees being important! I will have to pick up this pattern somewhere, unless I can modify something I have in the stash. It's totally worth it to spend on good weatherproof fabric - these are built to last! Great job.

Thanks for posting the comments on your thread, needle, and the seam construction. It's comments like that as to why I read reviews. No offense to others but something like, "nice pattern, I'd sew it again" doesn't do much for me. Your review gave me a helpful tip about the thread.
