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.

You did nice work on the fitting, because the end result is very flattering. They look great!

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!
