I think Style Arc have done it again - the Elle Pants look promising :)
Even using the most revolting polyester "ponte" knit ever, they arent looking too bad straight out of the envelope.
I think they are the type of pants that you make as per pattern and then keep running them in until they look/feel right.
I have only tried them on without the waist band and they are decent :)
I will finish them and see how they look.
So far all I have done is take 3 inches off the length, and I will probably need to run them in 1/4" all over.
