Carefree Twill Capris
Not the same capris
I have a pair of these capris, bought two years ago. This latest edition is not the same. Other reviewers have mentioned the smaller pockets -- they are smaller, but that is not a deal-breaker for me. What does matter is that the fit has changed, primarily through the hips and thighs. They are now baggy and loose-fitting rather than fairly slim and trim. I'm 5'2", 116 lbs., a size 6 or 8, petite, and I don't have thick thighs. I've compared the new pairs (I ordered 2 because I really liked the old pair) and it appears to me that the cut is indeed different. I've washed them hoping they'd shrink. Alas, and I guess this might be considered good news, they didn't shrink. So, they're OK for yard work, but I won't order again.

The fabric looks great and has a soft feel.
I love the way these capris fit and feel. I first ordered them in stone and after I received them, ordered another pair in navy. They look nice and don't wrinkle as other capris I have had.

I loved the color, exactly as appeared in catalog and on line. Very
well made and the fabric was first quality, wrinkle resistant, always
look fresh when wearing. So easy to order from my home and
receive at my door. Priced along the same lines as mall prices.
Returns handled in an quick and orderly manner. Great company to
Have as one of my favorite shopping places.

Excellent fabric and colors but somewhat skimpy
These twill capris are made of high quality fabric. I ordered them in five colors which are lovely. However, the elastic doesn't expand very much, and the pants are tighter than I would wish. Order a size larger than you usually wear.

Runs a bit small
Compared to other Appleseed's pants I've purchased, I thought that this style ran a bit small. Also, a cotton/spandex fabric would have made them more comfortable, but not enough to overcome the fit issues. I returned these.

As someone who carries her weight around the middle (but with trim hips, thighs, and derriere), i really do appreciate a true elastic waist band. It allows me to get slacks that fit properly below my waist, while not compressing me around the middle.
So I was pleased to see these capris described as having an "all-around elastic waist".
Well, technically, this is true; the pants do have elastic all around the waist. However--and this is a big however for those who want a real elastic waist band--the "elastic" stretches only a minimal amount!
Once again, a more accurate description would have been much appreciated here! These are going back.

The legs were a little wide. Otherwise nice capris
I really like the material and color of these pants. I can probably wear them most of the year, which for me is a plus. I have always enjoyed the quality of the products I've purchased through Appleseeds.
