How did you cut them to bell them out? The inseam is the only seam? Also you look beautiful!

Great looking pants! They sure don't look like elastic waist pants!

Wow. Gonna try these. Not sure if I can look as good in them as you do!

Wow!!! They look tremendous! You look great! They should put your picture on the website to promote sales of the pattern.

You really did do a excellent job on these pants. I have the pattern also and will try it out later...after I do my shorts for the summer.

Pants look great! I would just like to confirm that you can use an elastic waist with twill. I thought you needed to use a drapey fabric for elastic waists and that twill would be too stiff.

Would never have guessed these are elastic waist pants - they fit you perfectly and you are a real knock out in your outfit!

What great pants! You've given me a whole new reason to consider elastic-waist pants.

I kept looking at your photo, trying to see if you could tell it's an elastic waist. Nope! I might try to make these in white twill for summer. Thanks!

Wow how nice they look, you are right they look great and you would not guess there is elastic. I also find that pattern companies pant legs do not look like the did a great job Diva....

You are SO right! I had no idea about the elastic waist. What great-looking pants.

These are the best looking elastic waist pants I've ever seen. Very chic and upscale. Lovely, Lily

Wow! Love these - so chic and yet comfortable. My two favorite qualities in a garment. ;-)

You certainly added the "diva" to this terrific pair of pants. They look fantastic!

These pants look lovely on you. You are right about no one knowing they have an elastic waist. I guess the fact that you have a beautiful trim figure helps out also ..

Those pants are so cute! They are so tailored you'd never guess they had an elastic waist!

You're right - when I saw the pic I assumed these were a pair of zippered trousers. Great job on them!
