Oh MAN! I Had a disaster with this pattern, it's still floating around unfinished. It was also HUGE - I took in almost two inches on EACH LEG. The elastic waistband looked like sweatpants. This might have been my biggest sewing disaster ever lol. I'm so glad to see it work out for someone...in fact, with your alterations, mine would probably look similar. I did the panels too, which covered a lot of the mess.

Sara - I can totally see that. I'm easy to make pants for I'm totally straight - and the small elastic helped. But, blouse's - no way - I'm all curves! It took a few alterations - otherwise you are correct - they have ALOT of ease - also if I used a more drapey material it would have helped. I liked it because I needed a confidence boost after my cozy (which drained my sewing strength) - Mrs. Moos - Yes, Pockets would have been great! I forgot to post I actually sewed on front pockets and took them off cause they looked wonky. MHK - Thanks!
