Awesome awesome awesome! I love these pants! (And you know, I'm finding that I should not do so may alterations off the bat either. I just did a top and didn't alter the back at all... and it's great! doh! Quelle suprise.) Yor pants are very funky and very cool.

I love this style on you! This review is great, too. Very helpful indeed for me as I am struggling with a pair of HP jeans ...

LOL. I agreed with the sentiments completely, but it was uncharacteristic of you to chime in using those words.

Wow, might have to get this pattern after all - didn't think I was liking the culotte resurrection, but you may have convinced me. I was afraid of the low waist because of what my friend calls the muffin-top effect. Great review, thanks.

Wow. What a great write-up of the whole process. And you know, you may have just convinced me that I'm not too old for this style either...which was my initial thought when I looked at the pattern. Fabulous work and great pants (and shirt, too, ;) )

Lovely pants! Great look on you. Your interior work is noticed with envy. ;)Thanks for the wonderful review. I think I might be too short for this style, but maybe I should reconsider?

Great culottes MB. The pattern name “ funky cuffed culottes “can be worn not only for the young and trendy you showed us mature women that we can be funky too if we dare.

Fascinating process that you went through to get these pants to work for your body. I'm with Georgene -- carry the look over to longer pants as well.

What a great review. Thanks! Your pants look just great on.

Well now, those are mighty fine. YOur waistband is just about perfect in its 1.5" width. Will you use this fit for a longer trouser as well? It seems a shame not to carry it over to another silhouette.

You're a very brave woman facing all those fears! They look just great. Good on you for resisting the "de-style" urge.

These look just great! I'm always amazed how those lower waisted pants fit my middle-aged body.

You funky gal! They look great. Congrats on stretching your mental comfort level :-)

I am SO lovin' these Mary Beth! They remind me of those 80's "city shorts" which is a great fun & funky look that deserves to be revived. You could also wear these on the weekend with high boots and a denim jacket.

Fabulous! And good save -- I'm glad you steered clear of 'mommification', as these are funkay and flattering.

What a fun pair of pants! They look great both inside and out. I'm glad they worked for you.

You really made it work--they're both funky and foxy. Great with heels. Thanks for illustrating the metamorphosis of these pants.
