Cassandra thanks for the tip on sizing up for the woven - that will be my project for next weekend. Andi, the pattern is quite a generous fit, grading up 2 sizes would be quite enough I think. You might also consider adding a little to crotch depth and back inseams. I scooped out 1/2" from the back crotch for full derriere, and added to the back inseam half an inch. These last two alterations have eliminated those diagonal folds in the back leg, which I usually get on pants.

Sarah, Thanks for the great review!! I have been aging this pattern for a while, and now I will get to it! How much did you grade up?? I am a 52" hip and I figured I would grade up 2 sizes, to allow for a not skin tight fit...what do you think? Andi

Sarah, great review! I, too, am a fan of the wide-leg pant. I don't even know how many pairs I have made in the 2 years since I discovered CJ. Hmmm, a hanging pocket sounds great...just big enough for key, I.D. and credit card should do it for me. Thanks for the idea.

I have made the wide leg pattern five times in a woven. I cut a size larger for the wovens. It probably takes about an hour to make a pair, and that includes cutting!
