Thanks alot for your nice comments. The construction is not too complicated. Everything is based on formula (designers called it block method - I think)

Beautiful, flattering pants. Surely you plan to sell some of your patterns sometime in the future. I loved looking at your Flickr album -- especially the step-by-step construction photos.
