Those look excellent on you. I haven't made pants, but I just hemmed 6 pairs of RTW pants for some friends (with the shoes they would most likely be wearing).

Those are some great looking pants! Nice review, as well. I *always* hem for my shoes since I'm on the tall side. If I didn't, I'd be stuck with all ankle length pants and what fun is that? Also, I agree whole heartedly about bootleg being the cut of choice. Judging from fashion mags out now, the tapered pant is going away (hooray!) and a slight boot/straighter leg is in. Classic lines are back!! Your pants are just right. They'd be great in a RPL with a side zip, too. Oh! Consider the angled hem (back lower than front) as well.

Fab pants and great fit! Bootcut may be out of fashion but they will never go out of style IMHO.

Nice looking pants, and yes I always try to figure out what shoes I am going to wear with pants b/4 I hem, I have a pair in my sewing room right now that are awaiting me to make the decision and hem. I pin them at different lengths for different shoes and try them on with the shoes....

Great looking pair of pants. I'm with you on Bootcut legged pants. They are flattering to many people.

Great pair of pants. As for length, make them as long as possible. Denim has a progressive shrink and they will wind up too short if you don't add extra length now.

Great job! I never used a Jalie pattern but after seeing your results I just might check this one out. I'm with you on the bootcut thing too. Thanks for the review.

Thank you for this review and the link to the zipper tutorial. I plan to sew these for my SWAP and I've never done pants before. Yours look great and I'm keeping my fingers (mentally) crossed that my version comes out half as good.

Ok people, STOP reviewing great patterns. I don't need any more patterns in my stash. ;) Really, those are great looking pants! Well done.

Ohh! I love both versions. I want to make another pair of jeans in the near future..and you've definitely got me considering this version. I love the clean style!

Oh I love your pants. I've been looking for an easy side zipper pants and this one's just right. I am adding it to my list of things to sew. Thanks for your review.

I love the color on the new version! Beautiful pants!

I love the binding with the printed knit. What a great idea! Do these pants sit high or low on the waist?

cabinbaby said...
Deepika, They sit lower than your natural waist but not too low. You can see in some of the orignal pictures where I am lifting my shirt.

Beautiful pants, and excellent fit. They look fantastic on you.

Both of your pants are smashing. I think Jalie must have designed with a photo of you close at hand. Great fit, great fabrics. Boot cut pants are here to stay; tapered pants flatter very few. -Lily

I love all your pant photos - they look great on you. This is one pattern I will have to add to my collection.

Yes, I hem pants for certain shoes. I also hem my jeans longer for long-time sitting since I'm a frequent passenger on a motorcycle ;)

"This is totally a TNT pattern for me. Straight out of the envelope! " WOW, WOW, WOW!!! They look fabulous! I'm pretty jealous, first of your trim lean body, and secondly, of the great fit you obtained. Straight out of the envelope no less! Hrmmmph!!! LOL! I should be so lucky!! Great job!!

Love those trousers for your kids! Especially your embellishments. And the DBA is a great term -- is that yours? I use an old 80s Kwik Sew pattern for my boy's trousers because he wears bulky cloth nappies and so many new trousers in RTW are designed for disposables.

I'm amazed. Pants for two cutie pie tots to svelte mom with one pattern. Love your DBA ~ who knew there was term for what I did when I was making pants for my elderly Mom who was wearing Depends.... Stick with thos boot cut pants, they are truly perfect for you.

I love your idea of the knit binding on the waistband facing. Makes it look very finished. I may have to try that on some of my pants. Thanks for the great tip!

Those look great! So do the kids pants. It makes me want that pattern.

Just PERFECT! Your love for your little kiddies is written all over these pants. :o)
