Your experimenting and muslining (?) paid off -- a lovely tnt pattern for you! I can't imagine what you would do to the back to improve the fit -- do tell!

Outstanding work on your first pair of pants. You nailed the fit and the construction details. You should be very, very proud of yourself.

Great pair of pants! They look better than the info photo. Good idea to do whatever it takes and take as long as needed to get such a terrific result.

Does the word "perfection" have meaning for you? It should !! I can only hope my first effort would turn out half as good. They are great and look perfect on you. You make me think that maybe I might try !!

I have also made these pants. They are the first pants that actually fit me right. I was fortunate that I didn't need to make any alterations. I totally agree that the instructions are great!

sewcarolyn said...
These are the best looking pants I have ever made. I was furtunate that they fit me right out of the envelop. They are also only the second pair of pants that I have made that actually fit right. As the last reviewer said the instructions are great. The only complaint I had was that the allowed fabric yardage was a lot more than I needed.

Although it says discontinued. this pattern is still available and I was glad to find your review. I wish someone who wears plus sizes would review them too so I'd have a better idea whether the pattern would work for me. You sure did a great job with these!

I don't remember what led me to this pattern review (you know how it is). I am in awe of the perfect fit you achieved. In my dreams I will get to this fit some day. I hope you saved this TNT pattern!
