You look long and lean in these pants - a great look. Also thank you for the tip on Sigrid's pocket tutorial - it was very interesting.

LOL (victoria's secret comment). I'M tired of seeing my OWN underwear and pulling it out of my crotch from low waisted tight jeans!! Great job wearing beige and looking fab as usual. Beige bottoms make most people look fat. I agree, the construction looks very nice, nothing homemade about it!

Woo-hoo! I'm cheering and clapping because you finished a pair of very nice pants. Practice makes perfect so your next pair will be even better.

Great looking pants on you, you are too hard on yourself. Thanks for pocket tutorial, I traced out pattern last year but was stumped going any further, thanks for review, pants look super.

You're funny, Cidell. Love the Victoria Secret comment. Your pants look great.

Lovely pants! Practice will make perfect on the sewing side and I'm sure you have plenty of fabric to practice on. :) Anyone who notices any wonky sewing is standing FAR too close. LOL!

Victoria's secrets out! that's a good one! I like these pants, and think that as with all straight or wide-leg trousers, they'll look great with a heel rather than flats. I too suffer from "fear of The Fly," and applaud your growing skills in that direction. Great seeing your latest, DLK

Fabulous fit. Excellent work on your first pair of pants -- using a challenging pattern at that. I see lots more pants in your sewing future.

Great looking pants! Don't be so hard on yourself -- your pants look much better than a lot of higher end RTW! Fun review to read too!

Victoria's Secret, that is just too funny and so true. The pants look great and the fit is fantastic.

These are absolutely beautiful pants and I love the great neutral shade you selected. Absolutely seasonless! Thanks for the tip on the length. I must make a pair for myself!

I think they're very attractive, Renee! Thanks for the review.

Great pants - you are being way too hard on yourself.

As with all of your creations, these are beautiful! You always inspire me. Thanks, Cidell.

I'm jealous just looking at your flat belly. You can slap anything over that tummy and it would look great. Any imperfections you see are visible only to you because those pants look mighty good to me.

Cidell you are so accomplished! These pants are great, very RTW and you look like a slender sycamore, very tall and narrow. Three inch heels? Careful now...

wow - I think these look very professional. A job well done.

Cidell, I'm 'peering' at your photo trying to identify all the defective work - I don't see any of it! I see beautiful legs, in beautiful pants with beautiful details. Very lovely, Lily
