Rivets, clever topstitching and a contrasting waistband and fly - all add up to a fabulous pair of designer style pants. I love them.

Once you get used to the rhythm of the triple stitch, it does make for nice topstitching! Great pants!

Oooooo, I really the STITCH A LA CHRISTA that you've invented here. :o) It really shows up nicely, even though it's not a contrasting thread. I may have to give that a try next go 'round. These pants look so NICE on you, and I REALLY like the forward side seam and the way it works its way into the pockets (AND the contrasting facings). I think whenever I'm on the verge of actually USING my rivets, I'll send them to YOU so you can attach them for me. :o) ALSO a good idea to go up a size for lack of stretch. That's probably what I'll have to do when you send me my Jalie pants pattern, because it calls for stretch, which I rarely use. (Gee, am I writing a book here or WHAT?)

You've invented a new topstitch all your own and I love it! It sets off the unusual seaming details so well without calling too much attention to itself. I love the rivets and the facings, too! The fit is great. And what in the world does BWOF mean by "rank growth"?!! Something got totally lost in that translation!

Very cute!! I love the rivets. I have some in my future but they make me a little nervous.:) (what happened to the red shoes???)

Krista your capris are fab - fits you to a T and your different topstitching does stand out very nicely. Well done - I guess when you and Meggie Lulu step out it must be a real head turning event

Great looking capris. The top stitching and rivets add so much to the finished look. Thanks for your review.

Are rivets easy to put in? The capris looks so "real." Nice job!
