I think these trousers look amazing! You did a magnificent, professional looking welt. I wish mine looked that good! The fit is amazing too!
3/5/09 5:13 PM
You did a professional job and they look great on you.
3/5/09 5:27 PM
Still learning to fit? You have mastered fit! Your pants look spectacular.
3/5/09 5:31 PM
Your trousers fit you beautifully. Well done!
3/5/09 5:34 PM
WOW! Excellent fit. I dream about the day I sew a pair of pants where the fit looks as good as yours.
3/5/09 6:15 PM
OMG, not a single butt wrinkle...I'm so impressed. They look lovely. I plan on reading this review very closely. Thanks.
3/5/09 7:21 PM
Hello Willowsmum, I have never seen a pair of 'homemade' pants look so professional. Brilliant work! Regards, Gaylene
3/5/09 10:07 PM
Your pants are absolutely flawless! I have never seen such good fitting pants....ever. Even on size 2 models. Please show us more of your garments.
3/5/09 11:00 PM
Those are an outstanding pair of pants. They blow me away. A fantastic sewing accomplishment and I don't think the legs are too wide.
3/5/09 11:33 PM
Wow! I am so impressed with the fit of your pants.
3/6/09 1:04 AM
Ditto what VeryPrairie said...tweaking the fit? These pants are AMAZING!!!
3/6/09 5:40 AM
Willowsmum, your pants fit perfectly, they are faultless. Please can you describe the pants crotch curve, and any fitting problems/alterations you may have done. Contratulations!
3/6/09 6:44 AM
I've rarely seen a sharper pair of pants come off a home sewing machine. Correction: I've never seen a sharper pair.
3/6/09 6:58 AM
I think you can stop tweaking now. These are perfect.
3/6/09 7:17 AM
Wow! Great job on those pants. I gave up trying to make pants years ago, so I envy someone who has mastered pants.
3/6/09 7:46 AM
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of the information in your review! I am really excited to try the things you have suggested. BE-UTIFUL pair of trousers!

Thank you for a wonderful review. Your trousers look terrific!
3/6/09 9:32 AM
The fit in my opinion is excellent. I love the back with the welt pocket touch. Beautiful, very classical look. Those pants fall like a charm. Congratulations !
3/6/09 10:14 AM
those are great looking pants!
3/6/09 10:44 AM
Gorgeous, perfectly fit pants! Nice details too.
3/6/09 11:28 AM
those are amazing and they look great on you!!!
3/6/09 11:43 AM
These are knockout pants! You got an absolutely perfect drape fore and aft--which is extremely difficult to do without being in a class. In fact, you should be TEACHING a class in pants fitting and construction.
3/6/09 11:48 AM
These are beautiful pants, and this is a FABULOUS, extremely helpful review! Thanks!! :)
3/6/09 12:49 PM
WOW - amazing pants! Thanks for all the helpful information you've so generously packed into this review.
3/6/09 12:50 PM
You did a great job! I think you've got the fit mastered on these pants. These are beautiful pants!
3/6/09 12:52 PM
Wow - a great job and so professional.
3/6/09 3:12 PM
3/6/09 3:22 PM
Thank you ladies for all your wonderful comments......I am overwhelmed.
3/6/09 4:05 PM
These couldn't be more perfect. The fit is spectacular and they look SO GOOD on you! Congratulations and thank you for filling your review with so much helpful detail.
3/6/09 4:35 PM
I agree with everyone else. I don't think you could improve on these pants whatever you do. They are just so good. Your welt pocket is perfect. Fantastic job.
3/6/09 4:43 PM
Unbelievable fitting pants! Any chance you can show a picture of your tummy alteration? Would love to see what you did. Truly these pants are gorgeous! I am envious.
3/6/09 5:26 PM
Superb Fit! And what a comprehensive review. Thank you for sharing all of your tips and efforts. I've learned so much from this review, including self-confidence.
3/6/09 6:54 PM
These pants are impressive. Superb fit and construction details. Thanks for a very helpful review.
3/6/09 11:34 PM
What a BEAUTIFUL pair of pants, not only in FIT but in WORKMANSHIP, too. They're PERFECT!
3/6/09 11:38 PM
willowsmum, thank you for replying, your infomation is really very helpful. Just one more question, sorry, does the weight slide freely along the tape automatically finding centre crotch, or is it fixed.? barbaraj
3/7/09 8:33 AM
Sandra, as Carolyn says, your tweaking days are over. Absolute perfection in every way, and your construction is so professional. Your review is well written, and very generous in its fitting and construction details. Love all the photos, too. Lovely, Lily
3/7/09 1:40 PM
Oh my oh my oh my...This review was a tutorial in itself. Thank you for sharing your process--it was so helpful and I WILL refer to it when I finally take the Trouser Plunge. Yours came out beautifully--the pictures were so helpful. I would have LOVED to see pictures of the crotch-fitting gyrations! ;-)
3/7/09 2:38 PM
Really nice trousers, they fit you so well and the welt pocket is beautifully done.
3/7/09 4:22 PM
WOW! You did an amazing job. Thanks for the great review. I am definitely going to have to try these. I think they are perfect on you. I love the welt pocket.
3/7/09 4:27 PM
Your pants fit you very well!! They look GREAT on you!!
3/7/09 5:26 PM

Thank you for this wonderful review and information regarding your alterations. Absolutely beautifully fitting pants.
3/8/09 5:25 AM
I have to agree with the others - the fit and workmanship are amazing!
3/8/09 9:49 AM
What a beautiful pair of trousers! And I must say, your review was outstanding and extremely helpful. Thank you so much!

great review - wonderful fitting slacks!
4/3/09 9:01 AM
Fantastic trousers - perfect fit, perfect sewing.
4/3/09 4:32 PM
Your review should be a text book on pant fitting. Yours fit better than I have ever seen. Great work!
6/17/09 5:27 PM
All I can say is WOW!!!!
6/17/09 5:41 PM
Great work!!! jw

You are the pantsmiester!
6/17/09 6:29 PM
Wonderful, thanks for a really informative review!!
6/17/09 9:35 PM
Probably the most beautifully fitted trousers I have ever seen. Excellent explanation of alterations too.
7/31/09 11:42 AM
Very helpful to see your adjustments to the pattern. I have "Easy Guide to Sewing Pants" and need a basic pants pattern. This looks good.
11/18/09 8:28 PM
Wow - this is another fantastic review, Sandra. Your comments are really helpful for those of us still striving for fit. I'm appreciative. And, your pants look fabulous. What a beautiful straight seam on the side and yours is one of the few that looks great from behind. Beautiful, professional-looking job!
4/24/10 11:41 PM
One word... 'SUPERLATIVE'...I am about to make these and will follow your every word....I have purchased some very expensive fabric to make these but will do a muslin first according to your instructions...Thank you for sharing this ...
7/27/10 5:32 AM
you are a pants genius! I am in awe.
11/13/10 2:13 AM
Thank you SO much for this wonderful review. I agree w/ others, it is a great tutorial! Maggie
7/25/11 6:06 PM
Wow, I wish you wrote ALL of the reviews on here! A love one with lots of helpful construction details. This was amazing, definitely something I will come back to as I make shorts from this pattern. With pants that fit that well, it's a given you sure know what you are doing. Now, I'm going to check out what else you've reviewed and your blog. Thank you.
