Delightful and thorough review! Those pants look fabulous! The tutorial on the pockets is noteworthy, and I'm bookmarking this review. Thank you, BONEHEAD AT THE TOP

I can't decide which I like more: the pants or the review. One of them made me laugh, one didn't. You make the call..... ;-) Congratulations on perseverance and great results.

Great work, Annette, and I'm so glad you chose to repeat this Jalie pattern. It's a good comparison for us to see what you do differently. Those pockets are fantastic! I am really impressed by what you've done on this second version. Yes, these are so much better than the pockets on the first version. Well done!

Very informative and helpful review, not to mention funny. I feel as if I've had a history, biology, and sewing lesson in one! LOL. The pants are wonderful and I like the leg shape so much better, as I am not a fan of a pegged or tapered pants leg on "non-model" people.

I've looked at both reviews. I'm glad you took time to write the second one because it adds to the first. Very nice pants, too.

:D You are a gem. And whoa, you sure give your patterns a workout, but you obviously know what you're doing, because the results are great. This looks like a grrreat jeans pattern.

Annette, these are amazing. Your determination has paid off and these look absolutely wonderful. You have shown the reasons why to stick with a pattern and really make it your own. These pants F-I-T !!! They look fantastic and I am so inspired by your sewing! EXCELLENT review!

Your pants fit beautifully. Your review is packed with fitting tips. They made my head spin a bit, but I'll refer to your experience the next time I make pants. I have sewn several pairs with major fitting problems. I also like the pant style you created with the stove-pipe legs.

Man, I think you have the fit thing absolutely nailed! Great job.
