Your pants fit SO well , I have the pattern but have been hesitant to try them b/c I do not want super tight pants( as on cover) I like the relaxed way yours fit you, the ease of a side zip,,,and yours look SO flattering on you! If I could get these to fit, I would make a ton of them for spring! Side zip?? What more could one want?? Great pants on you, you are encouraging to a non 21 yr old that likes this style!

Thank you for a great review! The pants turned out great - they look wonderful on you. Your muslins reallly paid off. I can't wait to do this pattern myself now!

Great pants and yours look so much better than the ones on the front of the pattern. Thanks for such a thorough and helpful review.

Your final version look just fantastic (and the first version was not too bad either!). I enjoyed reading the thread of your fitting journey. Thanks for all the photos along the way.

Whatever you did between muslin 2 and the final garment was certainly the trick! You've got a great fitting pair of pants now that you can make over and over again. I just made these myself and I love them. Thanks for all the pix.

It's obvious that you don't look fat in THESE pants. I love the slim leg on you and your fitting work has resulted in a very nice and flattering garment. I always get to the same point with pants fitting. ARGH, I'm just giving up and calling these good enough. I've gone to bed every night this week with pants-fitting books in preparation for the next go-around. Thanks for posting all of the great photos and enjoy looking svelte in your new Clovers!
