    Looks good for a first time MTM.

    There seems to be a little tension on the side pockets, so I would change that on the pattern for your next order.
    They should lay flat.
    Would be careful about letting it out in the seat, as it seems from this photo that the it is the front that may need a little more fabric.

    Will be the dissenting view and say I don't think those MTMs look any better than your usual RTW.

    The seat and hips area look like they could be let out. The pockets are flaring out. And the back of your trousers don't hang very well. IME, you can solve this by shortening the back rise and letting out the crotch seam.
