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

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

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.

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.

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.

Nice pants. I have traced this one off and it is on my list..fabric waiting and everything..just no time...Thanks for the review..yours turned out I really want to get going on them. I love the embroidery detail!

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!

Super cute jeans! Love the color!

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.

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

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.

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

I agree. Love 'em! These are so springy and flattering. Ive got the fever to try these pants out too! Thanks for the review!

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.

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

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.)

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