Had this pattern for awhile, and will be making them soon. Wanted to get some input since I can wear them year round in Florida. Like your comment about adding to the center front. Thanks.

Very nice -- I also think these look much better than the envelope drawing!

I love your pants. After years of having to buy pants that were a bit short (long, long legs) I just feel silly in this style, as if I couldn't find anything long enough. Yours look fantastic though. I like the detailing of that front seam too - and elastic instead of drawstring is perfect in my book.

I agree that your capris look 100 times better than the pattern envelope. You don't look short in the photo. The vertical lines must be working for you! The looser fit will be so much cooler for the warm weather. Nice job!

These look lovely on you. Just right for summer!

Great fit - so much nicer than the pattern which I passed over because of the bell bottom look - seeing yours made up means I must go back and pick this up when there is a sale

Yours look nicer than the pattern illustration, which does not appeal to me at all. I'm sure you will find them eminently wearable summer pants.
