Great job. Pants look good. Now you have a TNT pants pattern.

Cool!! Another good use for the tape I stole from my husband and use to pick up stray threads. Those turned out great.

Terrific idea, great copied pants and very helpful tutorial. Thanks! Interesting how the curve in to the knee is more pronounced on the back piece. I'll have to look at some of my patterns and see if that is replicated.

Thanks for this info and the tutorial. I had never heard of using painters tape to do this.

Thanks very much for your review! How cool is this!!! Just this AM as I was donning my faded, favorite, nearly-wornout pants, I thought "I need to take these apart and make a pattern." NOW I will try the tape method instead. Thank you, thank you!

Great pants. They look like the twin of the RTW pair. I had to look twice as I didn't realise they were different.

Too bad there isn't a rating "VERY, VERY HELPFUL!" This is such a wonderful review, completely full of great information. Your pants turned out wonderfully.

I enjoyed your review. I had read about the painter's tape method, but never thought of trying it myself. What a great job.

What a great idea. YOur pants look great. I have just taken a pair of rtw pants apart to use as a pattern. I could not make a commercial pattern fit. I hope they fit as well as yours. jw
