These look great on you, even though you aren't happy with them. I like the faced pant, but not how it is designed, I agree. The instructions are hideous. One thing that I do is to drop the top of the zipper down low enough to have room for a hook above it which I copied from a pair of rtw.

Glad you were able to make them work for you. I'm going to steer clear of this pattern!

I think the side view is quite elegant. Your superior sewing skills is what made these turn out!! Darn those Hot Patterns with their stupid false advertising illustrations!

These pants turned out very nicely. I agree that your skill is what made the difference. I also agree that the silhouette is very different than the pattern envelope. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for the heads up and the very helpful review! Incidently, I do think they look like a very nice pair of pants, but understand that your expectation was something different. Great info and review.

Thanks for the warning about the pattern, but they do look very good on you--it's hard to know that sometimes when the final outcome doesn't match your expectations. :-)

These pants look really nice on you. So even though the pattern was not very good, it shows what great results are possible when you have great altering and sewing skills.

Definitely looking good on you, but I'll stay away from these patterns. It's your skills that make these perfect pants, not the pattern.

I'm so flattered by all of your comments about my sewing skills. Thank you so much! These pants were a pain, but I'm wearing them today. I can see that I could probably take a little more in the darts to make the waist a bit smaller. We'll see how they fare through the day.

Very nice pants. I've got this pattern, even have it cut out, but since the cut of the leg is what I liked in the first lpace, I think I'll steer clear of them, since they're not as depicted. Yours look great though!

The pants look great. Sorry for the frustration though. Thanks for the heads up. I still have not ventured into Hot Patterns. Maybe I won't.
