This is one of my favorite patterns, and you are right about the sizing. It can be greatly shortened - I'm five feet one, and they look good on me too with about 9 inches taken off (some at the thigh, some at the hem).

Very nice pants! Thanks for the information on creating a working button up bib. They are really very cute on your wife!

These are great-looking pants, Nick! I wish my husband would make ME some cool pants. I have this pant pattern and made a test garment of it and liked the fit but agree that a drop-front button closure is infinitely preferable to a zip and a faux bib. I love that you figured out how to make the drop-front closure with this pattern. I recently made Kwik Sew 3854 and added the long legs from this pattern to achieve the same end. Cheers!
