I think you are not an 'advanced beginner' anymore!

Good job on your pants. I've been wanting to make these up as well. I think the yoke detailing is very interesting and could be made to draw attention. Your fit looks great.

Thanks everyone for your very nice compliments! Kathy, lining up the intersecting yoke seams wasn't really difficult at all. I pinned those seams where they'd match first, then pinned the rest of the seam before sewing. The pieces are designed in such a way that it really is pretty easy.

Your pants turned out very nice. Was it hard to get the front yoke lines to meet up the way yours did. To me it looks like one of those patterns that has the potential to be off-kilter. Your making it sound too easy. Thanks for reviewing.

The fit looks great to me! One trick I learned from Kenneth King that I would suggest is to make the pants hem shorter in the front than in the back, so there is a clean fabric line instead of having it bunch up a little on the shoe. Nice job. I wish I could get pants to fit so well. I may have to try out that yoke.
