Those look great. I've looked at this pattern before but haven't convinced myself to get it - yet. Your version is just what I was hoping they would come out looking like, though.

You are making a believer out of me--the pattern looks like a winner, with the waist treatment and double knit fabric recommendation. Great job.

These pants look great - for loungepants they have a great fit and don't look too big - fantastic. Love the fabric too!

Very nice! In terms of sizing, I trace between two sizes & that might work for you as well.

I've made the top multiple times now, and like it a lot. You've just inspired me to make the pants, although I'm sure they look much better on tiny you than they will on me:-b Anyway, go ahead and try the top; it makes up very nicely and is very easy. It runs large -- I think I've gone down one size in fabrics with good body/return, and two sizes in onionskin; I have a 36 bust, and I make the XS in the onionskin and it could still be taken in a bit. I should add that I did a forward shoulder adjustment and a horizontal foldout of probably half an inch or so in the upper chest area -- thanks to all on this site for the wonderful fitting tips.

Your pants look fantastic, Courtney! Congrats on the nice smooth waistband finish. Although they're cotton knit, the color you chose makes them look quite sophisticated. Bravo.

This waist finish is very useful for all kinds of elastic waisted garments. Yours looks great!
