These look great. I am glad I am not the only one that is afraid of this type of trousers, maybe I should give them a go!

Love how these turned out, and I love how you styled them.

I love these, thanks for making this style up, I also love pleated pants, this will inspire me to take the plunge.

I love them! I think most of us are 'afraid' of pleated pants, but that's a good example of how great it can look. (Awsome shoes BTW)

I was worried when I saw that this type trouser was coming back in style. Your review makes me think better of it since you look so nice in the style. You did a very nice job of sewing your trousers, and they look great on you!
