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.

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!

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.

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! ;-)

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Wow! Great job on those pants. I gave up trying to make pants years ago, so I envy someone who has mastered pants.

I think you can stop tweaking now. These are perfect.

I've rarely seen a sharper pair of pants come off a home sewing machine. Correction: I've never seen a sharper pair.

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!

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.
