Beautiful fit. I'll be taking Sarah Veblen's class when it comes up later in the year. It's nice to know you had such good results with her methods and this pattern (still debating on using that one or another pants pattern)

Perfectly fitted even with the Sensuede I would say you are an expert with all your knowledge. Another Excellent Review.

Amazing fit. Your hard work has clearly paid off. You could never purchase pants that fit like these do. Congratulations! P.S. I like the blue on you!

I'm taking Sarah's class right now. I hope my pants look as good as yours. As usual with you Nancy, perfection!

Wonderful review to complement your lovely fitting pants.

The combination of the Silky Sensuede and the gorgeous deep sewn to perfection melded into a lovely, well- fitting pair of pants!

So pretty and what an excellent review with all the links. Thanks.

What a timely review for those of us taking Sarah's pants fitting class on PR. And a thorough one, something that has become de riguer from you. It's amazing that you were able to get such a good fit with that fabric. Thanks for letting us know that it didn't happen without a fair amount of work and discipline.

The pants are beautiful! I'm just finishing Sarah's Pants Fitting class and second the idea that while very worth the effort, it takes a lot of work. The TNT end result is a treasure. Great job!

Your black pants fit amazingly well. I agree, Sarah's fitting book and online classes are terrific.

Love all of your pants, especially the blue version. Thanks for the very thorough review!

Thank you so much for your kind and very generous comments. And thank you again to Sarah Veblen without whom I never would have gotten such a good fit.

Your pants look great! Thank you for sharing.

Great review. I tried on a pair of these with Sarah at a conference last year, and she wrote down the changes I'd need to make. I really liked the fit of the flat derriere style. This was a MUCH needed pant pattern in the sewing world. I'm surprised I don't see but your review! Sarah also makes the Tabula Rasa jacket pattern which is awesome and versatile.

Wow! Great pants! I like the colour! I think I will buy this pattern ... I am trying to make good fitting pants for a month now... I thin I have found the perfect tool.

I don't think I've ever seen pants that fit as well as your black wool crepe pair. Congratulations on sticking with the fitting.

Very helpful review.

One question: Does the back zipper seem strange? I don't think I've ever had a pair of pants with a back zipper.
6/2/13 10:55 PM
nancy2001 said...
The back zipper feels perfectly natural to me. Although most pants have front zippers, that may be primarily because mens pants have front zippers. But womens skirts have their zippers in the back, side or front, and we think nothing of that.

This pattern caught my eye. I'm surprised yours is still the only review. Let me say, you could make these in hot pink or any other color with no issue; you definitely do not need to wear only black pants! (I have RTW pants with back zippers; definitely not unusual.)

I just gave up on my attempt to add elastic to a faced Hollywood waist pair of wool crepe slacks. I couldn't figure it out. Can you share your tips? My internet search is turning up dry. Great looking pants!

Bravo to you for making a great fitting pair of pants!

Even though I commented before, I must again congratulate you and the terrific fit you got with this pattern. Very inspiring.
