I just cut a test muslin for these pants. Your reviews helped me a lot. The crotch depth measured fine for me; usually I add length. More to come after I stitch up this muslin

Thanks for the comment of good for beginners. I will put it on my wish list.

I've made these pants too, with just my usual adjustment of shortening the crotch depth by one inch. Susan, a zipper in the side seam would be just fine. The only risk would be uncomfortable/unsightly bulk. I made these pants with a fairly substantial tweed, and it would have been too bulky for a side seam zipper. In any fabric, you'd have to apply it carefully and watch for puckers at the bottom. I deal with the puckers at the bottom by lightly interfacing the seam allowance the length of the zipper plus about 1-1/2 inches below the bottom of the zipper.

My comment is really a question. Do you think I could move the zipper to the side of the pants instead of the back? I was thinking I could just sew the back seam and then put the invisible zipper at the side instead. Would it work?

This pattern and Textile Studio's Sohos are my favorite pant pattern. I agree about using fabric with a touch of lycra, they just seem more comfy. Fred's directions for installing an invisible zipper is well worth the price of the pattern.

LizGo, I agree with you - I love this pattern too! Sew-Jane, I am waistline and hipline challenged, and these pants have a great cut. Try it! The most difficult step is the invisible zipper, but it is well worth the extra effort.

Thanks for a well-written review. I am waistline challenged and am always curious about slim-fitting patterns.
