I've had this pattern for a very long time, which is why I reached for it this time. My work pants are all too big now, and with the weather cooling off, I needed some new ones. The pattern I got from the pants class isn't that impressive, seeing as how it doesn't even have pockets, a waistband, or parts for a fly front. The last time I made this Simplicity pattern, I was smaller (and I wore those pants A LOT), so I figured they would be a good place to start. I didn't expect them to fit perfectly right out of the envelope, and have so many of the features I like the best.
