They look like they hang very nicely. I love your tip of using a smaller size in front. I think I need to do that too!

Those pants really fit well on you. I can't bring up the pattern info. Is this pattern oop?

Nice job on your pants! I have these, & the sizing is confusing because it is different than other sewing patterns. (It also doesn't go small enough for those of us who are on that end of the range.)

Sandra - the sheet is included with the patterns now. I think you can order one from Nancy for a couple of dollars. Pretty useful!

Nice pants! You are on quite a roll!

Peggy, I bought this pattern a long time ago and recently decided to give it a try. My pattern does not give the instructions for the changes you mentioned. Is this something extra that you received from Nancy? I'd really like to have it! Sandra

Looks like you've tamed this pattern to conquer any fitting issues. The pants hang very nicely. I have this pattern and really want to try it.

Did I read somewhere for a no "rear" rear, wear the front in back and if this works, sew 2 fronts...

I have made several pairs of pants from this pattern. I had fewer fitting issues with this pattern than any other I have every sewed. It's a TNT for me, too!

I would be interested in seeing how other pants, such as cargos, can be made with these. Thanks for sharing.
