Thanks so much for mentioning the pocket problem!! I just started a pair of pants from this pattern for my DD & they were supposed to be a "quickie" project after several more complex ones. Got to the pockets & really didn't like the way they bulged. Decided to look at reviews of the pattern (in case I was woefully misunderstanding something), and thankfully, someone had the same problem. Now I can just fudge the pocket the way I was planning to. Thanks too, Blazer, for the heads up on the replacement pattern from McCall's - I'll try & see if they will replace mine, too.

what she doesn't mention is that she is correct in her assumption that the pattern pieces are off. McCall's had a printing error, and those misprints are still on the market. I now have two copies of them. I am waiting for McCall's to send me a revised and corrected version before I waste any more fabric.

They look great to me! I would absolutely wear pants as well fitted as those!
