Everyone said what I wanted to say already, but to add--I like the notched hem. Gives it a twist without limiting versatility. IMO they make the style more flattering (good for us shorties). :) Thanks for letting us see your pic and the real you. Always nice to put a face with a name.

I usually avoid anything labeled wide-legged (I'm about the same height as you are) but these are great on you.

You look terrific in these pants--they really are great on your petite frame. Thanks for you insight into fitting the lowered waist styles (no ease for the top 4 inches). I'm always afraid to fit them that extremely, but I think you've nailed it--even an inch or 2 of ease can be too much.

Wow! after all those positive comments, I'm definetly making them again. I've been wearing them today and it's been very hot. They've kept my legs quite cool and comfortable.

Like many other comments, these are great pants on you and I like very much. Never tried linen hemp, but sounds like a good choice for these pants.

Very nice looking pants, drsue. I also think they are flattering for your figure.

Thanks for the details in this review! I've had the layout for these pants on the living room floor for a few days, contemplating them. Your comments make me realize I'll feel more comfortable doing a muslin first to be sure fit is OK. Looking forward to making them! I'm using a lightweight black wool.

Great pants and you did a good job on the fit. That is one of my favorite colors, and it looks wonderful with your coloring.

Great looking pants AND the sash is perfect! Thank you for the detailed review and the heads up about fitting the new waistbands.

I love your pants. They look good on you.

Very nice pants! I think they look great on you. I think the cargo pocket looks fine from what I can see, and making it smaller and without interfacing keeps it from overpowering your stature. They look very proportional. Thanks for the review! I would love to try some linen/hemp blend fabrics, I bet they'd be cool here in South TX too.

Your pants look great! Linen-hemp sounds like a great combination. Color is good too.
