Thank you everyone. You make me feel so good with your kind comments. Linda E., send him on over. Skymom, I can empathise. My mom asked me to make a pair of these for my dad. His waist (or waist area) is 47! I think I have my work cut out for me.

Wow, Sandra! Your hubby is a very lucky man. The pants look just wonderful. You did great, girl!!!

Sandra, great looking pants for DH I can see he will never wear RTW again. Can I send you My DH to you make him some it is warmer down there than here. My DH needs better fitting pants than he has been wearing.

Sandra, Very impressive. I'll bet lots of sewists will be inspired to try a similar project, based on your amazing results.

Impressive--they look absolutely perfect. It's so great that you can make your DH a really well-fitting pair of pants. Of course, he seems to have an actual waist (unlike my DH), and that helps a lot!

They look great!!!

Well done Sandra! Your DH is certainly a good sport, even giving us a rear view. Now you'll have to make all his pants... RTW won't be good enough anymore!

Those are great! I know some of these are in my future (or rather DHs).

Sandra, the pants look fantastic!! Very professional and no one would ever know these were your first "real" pants for men. Great job!

Sandra: these pants look great! Your DH must be so happy and proud. You did an excellent job.

Sandra, I can certainly see why he likes them. They look great. And I agree with you about KS' instructions. I had the same "wow" reaction when I tried another of their patterns for men's pants. KS has a way of making me feel very accomplished. I wonder why the Big 4 (or 3 or 2 - what are we down to now? ) can't do as well. Thanks for posting the great pic; it makes me want to sew up some more pants for my DH, too.

I love that about KwikSew - you can not understand what the instructions are leading up to, but follow them blindly and it turns out brilliantly. You did a great job!

I'm really impressed! I would've said those *were* RTW. The fit is really nice too. Definitely worth the extra time spent making it.

Wow, Sandra, these pants are terrific - those back pockets look so professional! Congratulations

Wow great looking pants, I bet he will never want to wear a RTW one, now he is spoiled with a tailor made pair of pants.

Fantastic, Sandra!! Those look so RTW and seem to fit him really well.

Great job! Isn't it nice when DH is pleased? I think I'm more pleased with his affirmation more than anyone else.

Very, Very nice - great job!
Athelas said... (11/29/04 5:45 PM) Reply
Great job! Yes, very professional results!

That looks so professional! I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between your pants and RTW pants.
