I just finished sewing this pattern, and the only thing I had trouble with was the blindstitch hem which I've never done before. It's a classy pants pattern that fit me perfectly. (I have to admit I wanted to go for the size I wanted instead of the one I am) but was honest, and they fit perfectly, even over my "pooch" when sitting down. I will definitely make these again! Thanks to a pattern maker who knows "real" women!

Thanks for the great review! I have just ordered this pattern - am now really excited about getting it and making it up!

Isn't it great to find a pattern for pants that fit. Is this pattern for a long or short waist person. I have used their pattern for twin set and other than adding two inches to the length it fit perfectly. I see there is a new one now (well new to me anyway) at Timmel Fabrics for a wrap jacket or blouse. I think I will order that one and try it. Thanks for a great review Donna W

Congratulations on your great pants. This is my favorite pants pattern. The only alteration I have to make to it is to lengthen the legs slightly.

Mary, I have pretty full hips. and after the pants were made the material fell nicely over the butt. not cupping at all. I could see that you might run in to some fitting problems with the hip area. but if I were you I would give it a try. Good luck!

I am impressed with your review. I went to PP and printed off an order form and I plan to order this pattern this week. Thanks for a great review. What kind of fabric did you use?

Glad these worked out so well for you. People seem to love this pattern line. I read an article last week that said "rectangles" were the majority shape!! Never knew I had so much company

Congratulations. There is nothing better than fitting a pants pattern! Yeah.

I have this but have not sewn them. How did you find the back area under the butt? I am so flat there, but I was wondering what your experience with that was.
