Thanks for a useful review; I like the look of these pants myself. They look absolutely fine with your forties blouse; you certainly could wear them together.

nice pants, they look good with both tops, but I like the 40;s top best with them

I love the blouse and trousers. I can envision some cute peep-toe pumps with that outfit!

What a great looking pair of trousers! And you're so slim! I think they look really sharp with the contemporary shirt.

Very nice review, thanks! And I just love the line & silhouette on those pants - if I were your height I would definitely make them & wear them with anything, seriously! I think it's a classic look, and the snug fit is a perfect update.

If I looked as great as you do in those pants, I'd certainly wear them to work and wherever else. Get the contour knickers and get some use out of these. Thanks for a great review.

Your pants came out very nice. Very Katherine Hepburn. Color choice and the fit are perfect. Very versatile and wearable pants.

A very fine pair of trousers! I think they'd look nice with a cropped jacket, with the long leg line as balance.

I think they look excellent. I'd love a pair just like them. And I really like them with the 1940s blouse too. Definitely wear them!!

They look amazing on you..and I would give anything for your figure! I love the look with a crisp, white blouse...

These are fantastic trousers. You are certainly able to channel that Old Hollywood look that I love so much. They look beautifully made and seem worth making again and again in different fabrics. You wear them well (and thank heaven for those full control 'knickers', although you DON'T need them, except maybe for the panty line issue)!

Fabulous pants, very flattering. They look terrific worn with both tops. You should definitely make more - these are classic and chic.

Wow, what a fantastic looking pair of pants! I love the way you have changed the pattern to make them a little more fitted ..... very flattering.

I love your slacks - they look great on you. I also think you could wear either blouse with the slacks.

These pants suit your lovely figure so well -- I think you need them in every color!
