Great fitting pants. And great review. Okay, I'll bite, I have never heard of "pressing out the bias," but my linens always bag. Please tell me!!

Nice job on these pants! That back view shows what a great fit you have. The hidden pocket is so clever.

I am so impressed with the fit. (And achieving it with an elastic waist!) They look fabulous. Have a wonderful time in Barcelona.

CTBarb, I couldn't find the link to the Seat Stretch Prevention so I have edited the review include a photo from the S Betzina book.

Nice work, and I love your pocket and other changes. Thanks for the tip about pressing out the bias - I've never heard of that before, and I'm getting ready to make my first linen pants. This will be very helpful!

That's a really nice fit you've got in this pattern. It's a great idea to make it over and over again!

I have put in a thigh high side pocket in a "bound buttonhole" opening. I have thought of using an invisible zipper, but didn't think that it could be sewn into a slit in the fabric instead of a seam. Did you cut a horizontal seam on the pants leg?

Great fit! Nice looking pants and such a clever pocket. Great thing to have when traveling! I forgot about that SB trick. Thanks for the reminder, thanks for the review.

Ditto on all the kudos! Excellent explanations, and my goal is to learn to do all kinds of secret pockets, so your pants are particularly appealing to me.

Masd, there is a seam there. It shows better on different version - I will upload a photo later for you to see it better.

I seem to need to sign in to see the photos. I would love to see them. Especially the difference that pressing out the bias makes.

I have mended the photo links, please let me know if there are any more problems.

Love your pants! Fit is wonderful, and how clever to slip in a hidden pocket. Very helpful review!
