Can you apply the same changes to a more contemporary pattern and come up with a total winner almost out of the envelope?

Those pants fit you really well. I agree with you about pleats and tapers. Those pants are better that RTW anyday.

Skinny pants are back in style, and pleats won't be far behind. Looks like you got a very good fit. You can always add a bit of width to the legs, too. Great review.

another thing to consider - twill is stiffer and doesn't drape well. Perhaps with a softer fabric (soft linen, poly/rayon) they might look better. But I avoid pleats with my rounded middle, and I agree that a wider, straighter leg would be more flattering. I love Bettina's directions, just not her styles.

I made that pattern up in 1999 and looking back on pants back then, they were relatively straight legged! My how times change.

Good job! Judy Barlup has a pdf on converting plain front pants to pleated -- you could just do the reverse!

Great pair of pants. You really nailed the fit. Pleated pants are sooo comfortable and they will be back in style.

Hang on the pattern and your fitting notes... those pleats will no doubt be B A C K to haunt us again some year... Of course you could always convert to a darted front, assuming there is sufficient ease without them....

I think these pants fit beautifully in the back, though I agree the pleats look dated.
