Your pants look terrific, no wonder you're pleased. You've written quite an encomium to Christine. I wonder how her patterns would take to being sized up, as I'm just at the top of her size range. Thanks for such a detailed review.

You did a wonderful job on the pants, Nancy! They look great and the fit is amazing! And with the jacket, it's a totally fun set!

These look wonderful on you. Changing the waist treatment was a brilliant idea. I can see you living in these pants. They look fabulous and comfortable at the same time.

Thanks for the great review. I am back to sewing after taking many years off and am looking for some great patterns. I somehow found the CJ line of patterns and have ordered some but was reluctant to try slacks. This review helped me make the decision to order this pattern. I very much love the idea of the waist treatment you did as I do not like a lot of extra fabric at my waist so I will try to learn how to get some darts in there for a smooth look as you did. I am a petite person ( size 2-4 RTW) and am having a very difficult time finding classy clothing that doesn't cost me a huge amount of $$. I think I am purchasing the right line of patterns to start re doing my wardrobe . Now,,,,to find the right fabrics!!!

Hi Nancy Just wondering if you still making these pants( they look so darn good on you!) I am trying this pattern again , I was wondering if I should simply try another pattern, am wrestling w/ myself about the newer larger legs OR sticking w/ something that works need new pants BADLY, would love your input! Good sewing

You have written a fabulous review. I love the pants and the jacket, and am very encouraged to try Christine Jonson's patterns. I have to say that I actually thought to myself, "how remarkable that she found a beautiful commercial jacket that matches so perfectly." Silly me, this is a sewing site, but I can be excused for thinking it because your work is so professional.
