These are adorable-they fit perfectly. I think Marcy said she cut hers smaller too...anyway, as soon as I finish my three new tops for riding I am going to copy you and make these.

Thank you everyone! Your comments are making me think of these pants more as a "stylish upgrade" from sweats, rather than seeing "baggy oompah loompahs". The glass half empty or half full thing, you know. :D

These are the most stylish "sweat pants" I've ever seen. Your design changes are awesome.

Those look great! I love the waistband and pockets. You did well in choosing in choosing the pattern for your fleece.

Great pants, and it's your first pair. Thanks for the photos showing details and contrast fabric. Should be warm and much better than sweats.

I wished I looked so cute in oompa loompa pants. These are adorable. The pockets and hem really add a designer touch to them.

Thanks all! & lol @ Barb! If purple were a good color for me, I'd be wearing purple fleece :D

Somehow you manage to look svelte in these loose-fitting fleece pants. I love the contrast on the pocket and cuff. If I can't have spring I might need a pair of pants like this. I agree, fleece is such a breeze to sew. Let those other women wear purple as they age, I'm wearing sweats, probably feece sweats. Thanks for the inspiration.

The first one! Well, they look GREAT. You can totally wear these out. They look unique too, so that lends that extra something that surpasses sweats imho. :-)

very stylish!

My favorite around the house pants I made from windblock fleece. They are definitely sweat pants, not even go to the grocery store pants. You are inspiring me, with your beautiful fleece top & these pants, to make myself some step-above fleece.

Very cosy looking pants. Tips on sizing also very helpful.
