These pants look fabulous on you. Excellent photos of your alterations and nice explanations as well. Pants intimidate me, but you make sewing them look so easy. Thank you.

I love how the pants look on you. I purchased the pattern today and am excited to get started. What adjustments did you make? I also am swayback and will have to make the same. Let me know. Again, fabulous!

These look great. I love the sash, hope you can resolve the back sash issue. I appreciated your tutorial on alterations.

Thanks, everyone! Bananaoil & Braemar - I never thought of cutting the sash off grain. I'll give it a try before I totally not do the sash again.

Cennetta, McCall's will have to thank you for boosting sales of these slacks! These are sizzling on you!

Those are wonderful. The pattern would sell better if your pants were on the envelope!

Braemar said...
These are just beautiful, and the fit is perfect. Like bananaoil said, it think it would be worth trying the sash cut off grain! Mary Anne

The pants look good on you (I like the blouse too). What if you cut the sash a little on the bias? Do you think it would lie better in back? I wonder whether off grain but not true bias would work. I'm assuming cutting that piece on true bias would take up a lot of yardage but I had a dress pattern with self belt that called for doing just that, and I saw why when I ignored it and cut the piece on straight of grain. It did the same as your sash in the photo.

These pants look great, maybe you could alter the width of the sash but honestly no one is going to notice.

Oh, it's too bad the tie sash doesn't lie flatly across your back waist, b/c it looks so stylish from the front. Your lining looks very professional in these fine looking pants. Lovely, Lily
