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!

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!

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.

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!

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 !!

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.

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