Let's start a new renaissance. Pears unite! We should all make these pants if they make us look as nice as you do.

Ditto ALL the comments. I really thought your figure was amazing in these pants.

Funny, I looked at your picture before reading the review and thought "I would kill for those legs." Looks like these pants were a huge success!

Frantic, you have every right to be feeling smug about these pants! I would be too. Congratulations on getting a fabulous fit. They look fantastic! Thanks for sharing your pictures showing comparisons of pants. I found everything about your review really helpful and you have inspired me to give pants sewing a go.

Wow, these look just GREAT on you! I say you can EASILY wear slim pants from here on out! I do the same thing as you with the side seam, by the way. I hate that "bump" most patterns have at the hipline, so I just straighten it out. Bravo! :o)

You look great and so do the pants. I think you are way too hard on yourself!! How much did you take these in to make them fit you?

What a FANTASTIC job you did!!! They look AWSOME on you! Your pictures are so very helpful, as always, and everything you said is so true- the main thing is the silhouette, and you got one great one there!! Congrats!

You look wonderful in these black pants. They fit you beautifully and you should clone them.

Congrats on getting a pair of pants with a good fit. That's probably the hardest thing. Now that you've got the pattern down, you can make them in everything.

You hit the jackpot on these! Now you will have to make them in a gazillion fabrics and colors! Well done!

Nice fit! Now you'll have to make these at least 3 more times. ;-)

You look great in these pants--Congratulations on the wonderful fit! (I haven't made a pair of real pants for myself since 1986, and I think it's time. Your review is so timely and helpful for me!!) Thanks!

Your pants fit wonderfully! Thanks for the illustrative photos and pattern-alteration tips!

Niiiiice! Isn't it great to have success with a new look? They look pretty spiff even without heels. I made this pattern, too, and got good results. Loved the pockets. Haven't reviewed yet, bad me.
