Thanks for the great (helpful) review. This is why PR is such a good site--helps us avoid the pitfalls of a pattern. But your pants look very nice dispite the challenges.

Great fit and wonderful work with the waistband. Great review - you and I have the same Burda pant pattern as a #1

Nice! I saw the pants, the pattern, the Issey Miyake imprimatur, and I thought, "Hmm, I didn't know Issey Miyake made anything this straightforward and simple." Then I read the review! Nonetheless, great results even with a challenging approach to the fly construction.

Your pants look great. I really appreciate the review as I've always looked at the Issey Miyake patterns but never bought one.

I like your pants and have this pattern. I appreciate your review. I'd like to make the whole outfit. Do you plan to make the jacket too?

Love the pants - they look very Katherine Hepburn. If the gerneral fit to these pants is a largish sized waist then they're the ones for me. Thanks for the insights and I take the info re fly and pockets on board too.

I think they are perfectly wearable, Freya. Lovely fabric for trousers...I like how they fall around your shoes. Great review.

Such good-looking pants. Hope you can wrestle the waist into compliance. Your fabric is lovely!

These are beautiful! Really? You don't think you can refit them? I love the cut on you. I heard this hint about adding an additional seam in the contour waistband at the side seam mark so you can fit as you go. It might be too putzy but thought I'd pass it on.

Sorry about the waist being too big, but these look great! Hope they can be altered. Very nice work!

Really nice looking. These trousers look very "you". I applaud your returning to the pattern and doing a khaki version.
