I LOVE these pants, and I can't believe you got this fabric in the $2 bin at Wal-Mart! Really, really nice. That snagging thing may give me problems, though, as I have pernanent guitar callouses on my left hand. At least with a print, though, the snags might disappear.

Cindy, Viking calls them "glide plates", part # 412 34 66-45. There are three in a pack, one for the zipper foot, one for the A foot, and one for the d foot. The dealer I got them from said that they are resuable; the pack cost $9.95. I don't see them on the viking site, tho, maybe your dealer can help

Thanks, clin and kkkaty! clin, I tried the narrow zigzag and extremely light pressure-- still snagged. I think for my machine, I need to wrap the seam in question with wash-away stabilizer-- or maybe the thing kkkaty mentioned is the secret with a Viking! They seem particularly 'sticky' with clear elastic and slinky...

cute as can be! Viking makes an accessory that can be applied to your regular feet, it's teflon with a sticky back so you apply it to the foot when you need to use it, then peel it off for later use. I think the kit comes with several that fit difefrent feet, and it costs about $10, if I recall correctly...

Good going Cindy - love these pants. I guess I am one of the lucky ones (cross fingers) have not run into a problem sewing Slinky - use a very, very narrow .5 zig zag and the machine is set for working on knits (very little pressure) - those combined seem to work fine. EOS has a lot of on-line info on how to work with it.

Cindy-lou, both pairs of pants look great! Choosing different fabrics really gives the pants a very different look. I love your choices of fabric!

Very classy pants, and your fabric choice enhances the lovely drape. I too lose my manners when I sew slinky. But, all's well that ends well, and this pattern did end very well. Lovely. -Lily

Who would think that pants with flowers the size of Texas could be so attractive! The entire outfit is stunning. Thank you for this review.

A quickie pattern is always nice - especially when the results look so good!

I have this same pattern. Thanks for reviewing. I love funky fabrics, too and this style of pants. Looks great!

What a fun outfit! Pair those lovely pants with a coral pink halter and a some mile high heels and you're all set for a summer evening soiree!

You look gorgeous in your outfit. Love the pant fabric and the entire look. New Look definately produces some fine patterns. I reviewed New Look 6656-also wide pants, but not knit, and I loved the pattern.

Great looking outfit! The pants look so comfortable and I can imagine how comfy they must be to wear.

They are awesome. I love the idea that they feel like pajamas but don't look like them....I need a pair or two of those!!!

Oh, what fun. We all need an instant gratification project sometimes, and these are happy pants. Great job.
