Thirty hours..... wow, that is such a long time. Have a wonderful trip. You have such a nice ministry. Your new pants look very nice and comfortable.

Your pants turned out wonderful! Very nice. This pattern is in my collection, too. I just need to put it out.

Your pants look tailored for a perfect fit. I would not have guessed they have an elastic waistband.

Typically I need a medium at the waist and a large at the hip. I need a little less in the back leg and more in the front. I kind of tweaked the pattern to reflect my asymmetrical measurements. I may still take a bit off the back leg or narrow the leg a bit more.

Your pants look great. Very flattering on you, and you can't even tell it's an elastic waist! You said you cut between a M and L. Is this consistent with your measurements, or did you choose to cut up or down from your measurements?

This is by far my favourite pants pattern. Loes has designed a crotch that actually fits a woman's shape, and the leg width is perfect. Your version looks great.

Very nice and the fit is so good. As always, a great job. I wish you the best on your trip to Uganda.

I can only echo the above comments. The back fit is great and I will seek out this pattern. Best wishes for a healthy and successful trip.
