Three WINNERS! I would have never thought to use "unknown stretchy swimsuit type rubbery material" for pants, but look how cute they turned out. All THREE will be so fun to wear. They look nice from all angles, too (great fit)!

I have got to get this pattern up in the pile for fall sewing. You look great in all three pairs.

I've had this pattern for quite a while and wanted to make it up. You are bringing it back to the front.

I love these pants too. I made a black pair when the pattern first came out that I have worn to death. New pair needed.....
