Great fit! I'm certainly thinking about ordering a few of these patterns. The $20 shipping kept me from ordering the first time, but now . . . well, I think I'm going to have to order!! Thanks for the review.

These pants look so good on you, and you don't mention any pattern adjustments. How exciting to have another indie pattern company making stylish pants rather than those big, bluffy things the big 4 keep churning out. So glad you posted this review, and thanks for including a photo of the back fit and pocket detail. Nice work!

Thank you for this review! I have been stalking stylearc for over a month now, and finally succumbed with 2 patterns of my own last night, based on all the positive feedback thus far. They definately appear to be an independent worth watching...!! and If my pants (I got the cruisin kate pattern) look as good on me as the Melissa on you, that will be good.

They look fantastic as do you in them! Very flattering. I have several of their patterns on order order including the Katherine pant. Your review is making me very impatient to get them!

I'm impressed you made no alterations! The fit is perfect and very stylish. Just curious... Do you usually have many pant pattern alterations?

What a great fit on you! They look RTW. I might have to bite the bullet on the shipping and go for it. I would use this pattern over and over again. Thanks for the review.

Great pants, excellent fit on you. I also loved the blouse you were wearing in the pics. Did you make it as well?
