Barb these look wonderful. Wish I could get the "butt" of mine to look like yours.

Amazing pants. I love the fabric you used for these. The zipper looks very professional and I had made the same mistake as caper81 thinking that those were the actual RTW pants!!

What a great job. You even matched up the weave in the back pockets. Just love your waistband finish.

What a great fit. If my results were as good as yours, I'd love sewing pants too.

Those are great pants! I love your waist, fabric pockets, everything. Yes, and the fit is spot on!

Those are one impressive pair of fitted pants! Congratulations! I remember a few years ago you were on a quest to master the fit on pants and boy have you done that now!!!! These look great on you.

Your pants look fantastic! Very RTW! :) I'm really impressed with the fly-front zipper in your pants. At first click, I thought they were your store-bought ones (then I noticed "Barb's Waist Facing?Fly). Very inspiring indeed!
