Love these pants I bought them in the black and they are very soft. The material is very nice and I love the lace up back and the cute little buttons. They run true to size I usually wear a size 6 and the small fits perfectly. The pants are a little too long though, I pulled them up high on my waist and they are still dragging on the ground. I am 5'5''
I am 5'10'' and bought these pants in a medium, which is my normal size. They came a bit loose, but with the wide leg I thought I could handle it. They were also about two inches too long on ME, a tall girl. I wanted to wash them before I hemmed them and VOILA! they fit perfectly now. The length was most dramatic shrinking about 2-3 inches so I can wear them without heels and the fit around my waist is now more exact. Beautiful pants, very soft, very stylish. But the cotton can be deceiving so be aware when you order your size.
I ordered these pants the moment I saw them, and waited patiently for them to be shipped after being on backorder. The wait was worth it! These pants are amazing, super flattering, very sexy and fit true to size (they are supposed to be a little baggy like the model). The criss cross design in the back is also pretty cool (don't know why free people did not post a picture of the back?#. My only complaint #which seems to be the norm with a lot of free people clothing lately#, is that they are very, very long. I am 5'7" and they fell past my toes. I will have to pay to get them hemmed, but they are worth every penny. I wish they came in more colors #like green & white striped or red & white striped).
Must have wideleg summer knit pants! They are high-waisted but very comfortable on without a hint of tightness, scratchiness or pinching. Fabric is very soft and very forgiving. Even the stripes match up at the seams! Buttons up on the front of each side of the hip with a lace-up on the center back. Lace-up extends to about 6" down from the top of the waistband. There is also a small inset pocket on the back right hip just below the waistband which blends in perfectly. Very classic and versatile pants with a FP twist. Would look great with a tucked in blouse or a crop top. The XSmall I received has a 27" relaxed waist dimension. I think the item description for the Small says that the "length" is 28" but I think FP meant the "waist" is 28". All of the other dimensions listed for the Small are the same as the XSmall I received. Love these!
