I can see why you love these. I want the light grey pair. :) You did a fantastic job on the topstitching and fly front!

You made these??? Holy Moly here I am just cruising the site since I can't sleep and I come across your work. You're going to be on Project Runway someday aren't you. I'm glad I "found" inspire me!

Great job on the pockets. These look so much better on you than in the magazine that I'm inspired to make them for myself.

These pants are a triumph, I think! The Big Four pattern companies could take a lesson from your review.

Both of those pants look great on you (but of course everything does!!). I LOVE the details on the denim pair! Very nice!

You know, I thought the first pair was SOOOOOOOOO nice, but these JEANS are just THE BEST!!!!!!! Those little brads you added just MAKE them, and all of your TOPSTITCHING (can we all say "SWOOPS") is PERFECT! I wish I could run right in there and start on MY next pair of pants! GREAT job!
