Gorgeous pants! Wow! I agree with Nancy Rhodes comment above :) And thank you so much for the link to the video on how to construct a fly-front zipper! It think it's simply the *best* video (and I've watched a few) I've seen on sewing in this type of zipper. :) Thanks for all the helpful fitting tips! I will be taking measurements of my favorite jeans! :)

These are great on you! I've made this pattern before, early on, and without the bells and whistles. Definitely worth making again after seeing your review. Many thanks :)

It's a wonderful event when home-sewn pants look better than RTW and better than the pattern photo. Yours are both. I agree with how much can be learned from PR members. Thanks for showing your pattern alterations. It's so helpful to see what works in the area of pants fitting.

These pants look awesome on you. Fit is spot on. Thanks for the tips on copying the dimensions from RTW and starting from there. I think that is a great idea. I have this pattern and it's now officially on my "to do" list. Thanks!

Beautiful pants!! I have made these pants a few times but have never been happy with how tight they were through the back. I may have to try your alteration to the crotch! Thanks for sharing.

You got a marvelous fit from this pattern! I believe the crotch curve is the most challenging fit issue I face in all my patterns...I'm getting closer but still a work in progress. The slacks look wonderful!

Oh, well done indeed! I make these all the time for work out of anything machine washable and dryable and always have good luck. I omit the front fly zip and just insert an invisible one on the side. The fit on this pattern is quite good. I'm short and oddly shaped but yet they fit.

Very smart pants. Your alteration to the crotch is clever.

Thanks, everyone! I'm going to wear them with a black turtleneck to work tomorrow.

Nice job on your pants! I would go for making a jacket, or cute fitted vest, to go with it, since the pants came out so well!

Beautiful pantsmanship! Love your review, particularly... " I swear, I have learned more about sewing in the past 8 months that I've been a member here than I have learned in the previous 20 years of sewing by myself". For me, PR has made my hobby less of a solitary one.. I feel I have sewing company. Thnx

Great job. The pants look wonderful and fit you very well. I really appreciate you showing how you did the crotch. I have similar fitting issues.
