Rated 4 out of 5 by LJJCrewFan Not quite as good as previous version
My daughter had pixie pants last year and had a ton of wear out of them. When her current pants became too short, I ordered replacements in the next size. The new version is slightly different from the old. The pockets are now angled rather than straight across and the waistband is now a stretch nylon rather than being made of the same fabric as the pants. Although my daughter has accepted the new waistband, she does not find the pants as comfortable. The stretch nylon waistband is a little 'prickly' and not as nice next to her skin. J Crew, bring back the old waistband! It was much more comfortable and looked nicer and higher quality as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PXSshopper Picture is Misleading, But Still OK
I ordered a size 12 and 14, knowing I would not get the 14's for a long time. The 14's were for me (I'm too petite for the womens pixie pants), and the 12's for my daughter. The size 12 arrived and we were sad to see that the waistband is not made of the same pant material; instead, it is made of stretchy elastic, unlike what the picture shows. The 12's fit me perfectly, so these run short and large (not slim-fitting for kids). On the bright side, they are thick and high-quality! They just won't work for her. And I know I'm not the only one thinking this: I really wish J Crew would come out with "slim," "short," and "long" sizes for kids. Kids plus sizes would be great, too; why not offer more options and inclusivity? Also, please go back to the old waistband, as this one is just not going to be comfortable for kids. I hope that is the reason all these are on backorder...
