Fabulous pants! I really like the wide flares--they funk things up a bit without looking overly retro.

Oh, very cool. :) I really like your one "witty" patch pocket. (P.S. Dawn, the blog link in your recent reviews isn't working. The beginning of the url seems to be incorrect.)

I love trouser-jeans with wide legs. These look great. How much did you take in a the bell-bottoms?

Very very nice! I was already liking this basic pants pattern in the mag, but you've really enhanced it with all the lovely details.

Great jeans, I really liked these in the magazine so it is nice to see a good review of them.

I was drawn to these too. Just wonder if I am too short to carry them off at 5'1". What do you think? They look fabulous.

Absolutely gorgeous, Dawn. I love the tone-on-tone embroidery on the back pockets, and your keyhole buttonhole. Smart looking bells, Lily

nicely done! they seem a little more narrow than I would have guessed from the BWOF picture. I have some of this denim too, so I'm happy to see it made up into something.

Super cute jeans! Love the color!

I think your waistband modification makes all the difference in raising the style factor on these. I would never have considered them until I read your review. And I love those seriously witty and brilliant pockets you've created!

Very nice jeans! These are definitely on my to do list now. Thanks for the detailed review!

I love your jeans. Love the fabric, love how well you sewed them up, love the style, and specially love you tone on tone embroidery for the pockets. Awesome job! I'm totally getting jean envy.

Very nice looking pants! Thanks for the review and great photos. When I saw these in the BWOF magazine I thought they would make up nice, now I'm ready to make them thanks to your great review.

Re Joan1954's comment, I think you have to enter your blog URL starting with http://www instead of just www. I believe that will fix it.

cabinbaby said...
I fixed the link. Lohroffe, you're right; I needed to add the http:// part. Thanks!

I love the denim and your embroidery! Good idea on the back pockets and adding just one in the front was a much "wittier" touch than two
