Bi-Stretch Side Zip Pants
Do not fit well
The quality of the material is good, but the fit is poor. The waistband is not smooth and did not lay flat; they gapped all around the waist. Overall fit was large.

Very disappointed in this product
did not like quality of fabric and elastic around waist would not
lay flat. Also, on outside of left leg of pants there was a discoloration of the dye about a foot in length.

Bi-Stretch Side Zip Pants
This pair of pants had been in previous catalogues and when the price dropped, I pounced as I had a new grey sweater that I thought would look nice with them. However, the pants were advertised as having elastic in the waist with a zipper. I ordered a Large as my hips fall between a 44 and 45. However, when I tried the pants on the top of the zipper did not even meet so that you could zip them up. On closer look there was elastic, but not elastic that gives very much.
I took every sewing course I could in college, even though I had a different major as I liked to sew. I have always found that Appleseed is usually very direct in their description on the clothes that they sell. Sometimes you hit a time when articles do not fit. But this time I think you were not clear enough on the type of elastic that was in the waist band. Some elastic will give a lot and then there are others that hardly give at all.. Pat

side zip pants
Love love love these pants, am wearing them as I write this review, they look and feel very feminine, nice side zip pants are sometimes hard to find, these look especially nice when I wear stockings under them and I couldn't be happier with the fit and quality

Ordered size 12 petite--fit like size 10 p
Size label marked size 12P as did the other 2 pair I ordered. Two pair fit fine but these fit like size 10 or smaller.
That pair was returned.

I was disappointed with the quality & workmanship
The waist was all wrinkled and would not lay flat.
The material was not what I had expected. The garment was heavier than I wanted and Spandex would be better than Lycra in the material.
It appeared that the manufacturer did not practice quality control.
The pants did not fit your selling description. They did not fit well.

Not happy that you cannot iron on the fabric. Did order one size down as reviews suggested, but waist is tight. Unhappy that it would cost $8.99 to return item and was charged $12.99 to ship 4 items. Shipping costs are outrageous.
