Congratulations on your pants that fit. This is like the ultimate fitting accomplishment for most of us here. Did you feel like the biggest part of your success was the pattern suited your body curves or having the Block to compare to the pattern? The details in your review are very helpful for the pattern instructions and for your body shape adjustments.

Using your block sounds like a great idea with great results. These look like a wonderful fit.

So great that you're getting pants that fit! I hear ya on the waist issue. :)

Your trousers look great! I'm interested in this pattern as it sounds like some of our body is similar in shape. I'm pretty sure it is lurking in my stash, or if not, that I had wondered about sewing it. Thanks for the heads up on the zipper insertion, sometimes pattern companies do mess things around.
