I've had this pattern but reading your review and seeing your pic is giving me motivation to make them up. Thanks.

Gawd, you've convinced me! I almost want to eat these pants for dessert! I'm going to order it soon. Thank you. -LornaKismet (Lorna A.)

Great review. I am ordering based on the fact that I, too, am no longer in my 20s. I am on a quest for the perfect, easy-to-make, flattering, comfortable, well-fitting pants. Is that asking so much??

This review convinced me that making the Cruise Pant wouldn't be a waste of time, especially the comment about those of us no longer in our twenties. I just finished the Soho Pant (love the fit) and want a pull on pant that isn't full at the waist.

I love this pants pattern. I am WAY beyond my 20's and find it my "Go to".

Sorry for the duplicate, hit that back button automatically!

I hope you guys like these pants as much as I do! About the ease, I should add that there is a large difference between my waist and hip measurements, maybe that affects the fit? As soon as I figure out how, I'll add a pic of the rear view.

I found these sort of oversized, but maybe the larger sizes are drafted with more ease?? Pattern instructions never say this, but it's okay to put a zipper in elastic-waist pants (or skirts). This helps if you want to use a smaller size for a closer fit. An invisible zipper in center front or back is easy. No fly or placket needed- just use a wider seam allowance.

Thanks so much for the great review! I recently got this pattern and was wondering if I'd made a mistake but am now eager to try it!

What a fun review! And I agree with Amanda about P&S Fabrics. Next year its definitely on our agend for PR Weekend. Gorgeous fabrics and the only place where I could find Tencel.

What a fun review to read this was! I wouldn't have considered this pattern until I read your review, but now I may have to get it!

Thank you for the informative review. I, too, have never paid much attention to this pattern, but your review gives me pause and I think I will give it a try. Thanks.

Thanks for the entertaining and informative review. I have made the Burda one-seam pant about ten times. Maybe it's time for a change!

Isn't it great to have a pants pattern you can rely on over and over? Love the review....

Great review, sew much sew, that I am adding to my wish list.

I also prefer these pants to the wider legged Oxfords. Maybe I cut mine a little larger as they are not too tight and I don't have to shimmy to put them on. Really a great, simple to make pattern.
