Thank you for the hint on pressing before sewing--brilliant! The pattern companies aren't the only ones who haven't heard of this :) Also, the Steam-a-Seam hint is helpful.

Nancy, Your review really helped me out. thanks for all of your comments on sizing, and stitching. I put tabs on for fun, too. Looks good. And NO they don't make you look fat! mwz.

They are great looking pants but the backside adds alot of weight on every picture I have seen of them. I was so excited to make them but now am not so sure. My behind is big enough and I don't need help making it bigger. You are much slimmer than the pants make you look. Thanks so much for the great review

I agree with DH..But, then everyone should have "Chinese Farmer Pants!"Style & Practicality..I also have this pattern, and am grateful for all the reviews before I sew them..Maybe she is using the High Fashion Designers trick of making sizes big for a smaller size?..

These pants look great on you! The topstitching is much less hassle if you don't do the contrast color; in my case, I set my needle so that it entered at the farthest point from the seam edge, and simply ran my zigzag foot along the seam. Perfect topstitching without a special foot . . .

Nobody said the obvious: they do NOT make you look fat! They are very cute and you did a beautiful job. Enjoy wearing them this summer. They look very comfy and cool. Thanks for all the great tips. Sue

I like these too! Very comfy looking, but in a stylish sort of way, not sloppy.

Cute pants , they look cool and comfy. I really must get an edge foot too.

Thanks for mentioning the edge sitch foot. For all I know one came with my machine and now I can't wait to go home and check! Your pants do look like they would be perfect for going to the beach in ... maybe with a nautical type swimsuit!

I agree with you. Your a slim woman and these pants certainly don't do you justice. I like full pants, but this pattern I've had questions about. Your review certainly answered my questions. Thanks!

I'm glad you reviewed this because this pattern is in my stash. I like them for cool summer pants. Nice job and review.

Great tip about the edge stitching foot. I inherited a machine from my grandmother and am still learning what all the feet in the case are I know at least one more!

Your pants turned out great. They look really comfy. Thanks for the warning about the loose fit and for suggesting to go by the waist size. Thanks for the review.

Cute pants Nancy. I agree that the topstitching gives the pants a nice touch of style. They look like great summer pants. Thanks for the review.
