Wow, your pants look great! From the photos they look really close to the Express pants. The rest of your outfit is super-cute, too, btw. Thanks for the great info on this pattern. I might have to get it...

they look way better than the fit at the store so you are doing pretty dang good if they are going to get better! The color is perfect RTW. and they look fabulous tucked in and i'm not seeing the "too high" when they are.

Wow! These pants are super nice. I love them! I think the fit is great. And no, it's not strange to keep looking at your wonderful work. I do it too sometimes. :-)

Your pants look great to me. I don't see the waist as being too high. They look perfect!

Great job! I guess there's always room for improvement, especially if you're a "home-sewist"! (8^D)! (I have a friend who claims it works if you can't see a flaw at 20 feet when it goes by on a fast horse.)

These look wonderful and makes me want to sew them. Sew many patterns, sew little time. Great Job!

I love those trousers. I also love your TNT pants. What pattern did you use on the TNT? Hope I can fit pants that well.

sewnsewtoo My favorite pants are RTW. They are available at Express. The fit is called "Editor"

Looks like you're well on your way to the perfect pants. They look pretty darn good.

These look great! Thanks for explaining your alterations, it's very helpful and your photos are great!

Great looking pants. They fit very nicely for a first try with no muslin. I think you may have found a TNT!

For the first try, they are awesome and soooo close to your favourite brand! I bet the next will be as you want them to be! I like this pair of trousers!

This is a great pair of pants. I will have to get this pattern.

I can completely understand staring at your best fly front zipper ever. If it's weird, then we're all weird. Great work on these - if this is your first pair, then you need to make more, and soon, because these look really good on you and you're very clear about the changes you want to make.

You look great! The fit is pretty close - that's a fantastic result for a first go with the pattern. A bit longer, slightly more flare & you've got a perfect match for your RTW. I'm not seeing the excess to take in at the sides, maybe it's due to the stretch when you move? My pants course instructor taught us that every fabric will need adjustment at the side seams as each stretches differently.

Wow, those are great!!! I love your fabric. Isn't it nice to have a go-to pants pattern?

Ooooh, no wonder you're in love! I'll have to drag out my copy of the pattern and then get a magic wand so I can look like you!

Those are just great on you, Deepika. Looks like you have a new TNT. I've had this pattern traced out and waiting to be cut and sewn for quite some time now. I, too, like the simplicity of it with no pockets. Perhaps your review will be the push I need.

USMCMom said...
Well, as always, you look adorable! And so do the pants. I know you're a little dissatisfied with some aspects of the fit, but believe me when I tell you, they really do look great. Good job!

Elona said...
Deepika, these look marvelous on you! Congratulations on a great fit.

PattiK said...
They look great. I am tempted to get the pattern but I need pockets and I don't see any on this pattern. Thanks for the review!

Great looking pants! Just ordered this pattern on the strength of your review; I don't like pockets in pants, either.

Great pairs of pants! They fit perfectly and your fabrics look great. I like the fit of both pairs. Looking forward to seeing the next pairs.

Very snazzy. I love striped pants, too.

Very definitely a TNT - these look absolutely smashing on you!!

What a timely review!! I was just looking at this pattern and considering buying it- I need a flat-front pant pattern for DD- and here was your new review. So I bought it.

I liked the real-world notes she included about the steps she took to make changes and the reasons.

Great looking pants! They look better than the pair from Express.

Great pants, Deepika! It looks like they (the original pair) really need very little to make them just right :o) I always have that extra fabric around the upper thighs too, I don't know why! Guess I'm not as curvy there as I always think. Anyway, the new pants look absolutely perfect! I don't blame you for wanting to make a hundred more :oP lol!
