Jennifer, These palazzo pants are really nice looking on you. I know what you mean about pockets adding bulk to the hip area. Whenever I make a knit pair of pants I always cut the front pocket out of venice -- a very stable light weight nylon (I think). It reduces the bulk considerably. See if that will help your next pair. Great job on the pants!

Thanks for reviewing this. It looks a really good pattern for palazzo pants, and the style is probably the best ever invented for full-figured women. Side seam pockets do add bulk, and sometimes patch pockets can be a good alternative if you are making pants for caual wear.

Jennifer: good review. The sewing instructions on the big 4 companies that I've looked at lately seem to be really thin on correct sewing techniques. I have no idea Why they do this except it really allows your review to shine with helpful info so maybe it's a good thing!
