Great pants. Perfectly executed. I love what you did with the buttonholes for the drawstring. Very classy. I wouldn't have given this pattern a moment's thought, but your pants came out so great that I think I might try it. Thanks for the review.

You did a great job altering a commercial pattern. The fit is really flattering and the whole outfit is very put together. Kudos for your effort.

Erica, you look gorgeous in your photos, and in everything you make. How do you do it? I'm really attracted to your pants b/c they're a perfect demonstration of how to transform standard cargos into a feminized and flattering pant, and your self fabric ties are a real quality touch. Your needlework is exquite, too. Lovely, Lily

Erica, those really look great. Did you have to make any fit adjustments, or do they fit right out of the pkg?
