Really good looking pants.

Great job. I also made these out of linen (brown in my case), and my fit ended up being very similar to yours. These pattern does run a little large. I think the Burda inseams are very long as a rule, since most of their pants are probably meant to be worn with heels.

These are astounding pants! Leslie, you do such nice work. They look fab on you. I just now saw your review - better late than never, especially for these outstanding britches.

That's some classy pair of pants. Sorry about the weather that precluded you wearing them for the great graduation event! However, I'm sure you'll be able to wear these not just all summer this year, but for years to come. Just stay away from mustard and people who slosh red wine around. (I can't help it--white pants look so GOOD, but they make me so nervous!)

Leslie: these look great on you, but so does everything else you've made! I'm sure you'll be wearing these until they wear out. Thanks for review.

Beautiful pants! Question: Do you completely line the pants? Thanks.

Beautiful pants. They look so nice on you. Good thinking to line them--not sure I would have had such forethought.

Gorgeous my friend, just gorgeous! And what a bummer you didn't get to wear them after all that work. I will have to try a pair of those, they look so slimming (not that you need any slimming tho!).

I have got to get my hands on some white linen! Leslie, you look so cool and beautiful! Lucky for me, 38 *is* my size.

Leslie, just fantastic! Yes, you'll get a lot of wear from these in Austin. So, when does your boutique open? I'll road-trip to Austin if you ever open one!

Great Leslie ! I am making these at the moment. I too have found a size smaller would have been better. I am very hopeful that these will be a sucess for me and become a fav pattern. You as always look great in everything you make.

Perfect pants. White linen pants are the ultimate in classy.

Very Great Gatsby. I love the nautical version too--are you game for it? / At least you know that Burda sizing runs true for you now and you won't have to trace a larger size when sewing on a deadline. Think of the fabric you'll save! In the meantime you'll become an expert in grading down with vertical tissue tucks.
