Loes Hinse European Pant 5001

Pattern Description: 
 From Pattern envelope, "Loes Hinse patterns are based on the designs for her boutique in Carmel, California…"  View a pants have a zipper front for use with non-stretch fabrics.  View B has an elastic waist band, darts, and is for use with knits.
Pattern Sizing:
xxs-xxl – I used size medium. 
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like  or dislike about the pattern?
I love the fact that these pants, while stylish, are as comfortable as wearing sweatpants!
Fabric Used:
So far, I’ve made 2 pairs: the cream colored pants were made from a cotton knit purchased from nancys notions and the blue pants were a wool jersey found in the bargain bin at Denver Fabrics.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
Not much.  I took maybe 1/4" off at the top of the waist to shorten the crotch.  There are only 2 pattern pieces to this garment and , for view b, you make the waistband by folding over the tops for an elastic casing.  How easy is that?
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I very quickly whipped out 2 pairs at once, and they make great wardrobe builders.  I’m still seeing knit pants in the stores as coordinate pieces.  Using them as part of an ensemble really dresses these up.  The wool jersey pants have a nicer drape than the cotton.  I took the leftover jersey and felted it and made a small cardigan to match 
I’ll definately try these pants in a fluid woven at some point.  Simple zip fly instructions are included for wovens.
