I made these a few weeks ago, in the shorter version, and in a linen blend, and I love them! Crisp and cool, just right for a Sunday market on a warm and sunny morning....

Very nice looking and I can see that they would be comfortable. Nice job.

Do make them again. I like the way yours turned out. They would be lovely in linen.

Hope yiou don't mind the word "cute" but this is exactly how these look on you. I hope you go for the linen - the style suits you so well

Very nice!

I think they came out good but I agree about using a drapier fabric. I bet the linen would look great.

These do look like wonderful summer pants, love them with your top.

These are good looking on you and turned out well despite your concern over the use of the fabric. I too am anxious to see these sewn with linen....go for it!

Great summer pants! I bet they'll look wonderful in linen.

Linen would be the perfect fabric for these pants. I love your white top with the denim pair!

I just bought some Brussels Washer linen blend to make these pants--so your tips are welcome. Yours look just great, as usual. I'm curious about your method of removing 3 inches from the legs. Did you take a fold or reduce at the seam lines? Thanks, Marci

your topstitching looks great Ann, cute pants!

Ann Smith said...
Marci, as I had already sewn these before realizing I needed to remove extra fabric I did it in the seam allowances. When I make them again I will fold out the excess before cutting and that way I can take more out of the back where it needs to be removed most. I took in all seams except the front leg seam.

I think these pants rock! They look as good on you as they do on the pattern.

I looked at this pattern today, and thought, "I'll wait for a review" and here you are! The pants look much better on you than the envelope suggests. Nice work.

Karine said...
These are currently a work in progress for me. I got a poly microfiber from Marcy Tilton's web site. She refers to it as "stretch woven foolproof pant fabric." Based on what I'm experiencing, I think your observations are right on target. The drape of my fabric seems to make the pants appear less full. Your finished pants, however, look great on you and I hope you try another pair!

Thanks for your take on these pants. I like them, and want a pair myself! They look so cool!

I love them! This version is even better than the first. Thanks for the update.

pterion said...
Such a wonderful review - I have this pattern so thanks for the heads-up on the sizing. Both versions turned out great but I see what you mean about the drape of the linen bringing out the best in the pattern.

Izzie said...
Great pants Ann! I have the pattern and I want to make them soon. Could you clarify what size you used? You said you used small on the 2nd pair, but the pattern is labled with numbered sizes (12-14-16 etc). How many sizes did you end up going down from your measurments? Thanks for the review, I always enjoy seeing your creations.
7/25/08 11:20 AM
Ann Smith said...
Izzie, I see I stated the sizing incorrectly. I meant to say I went a size smaller on the second pair and that would be two sizes smaller than my measurements indicated.

I like these pants better than the original and I love the new top.

You're rockin' that whole West Coast casual look! Nice!

Reading your blog re: Haute Couture -- are they in the L.A. area? I'd love to learn more. Pls. leave me a message. Thanks, Davin

Davin, Haute Couture is a fashion/sewing club based in Stockton, Ca. Sorry, not in LA. Ann

Love the whole outfit. I recognise the linen your top is made from! I looked really hard at it at JoAnn's but ended up passing on it. Wonder if they have any left?

soulnoir said...
I agree. at least 3 inches need be removed from the side front and back.
