This is my first and second pair. First pair loose fit with wrinkle issues; second pair fits like a second skin. I love this class to begin my serious sewing again

You did an awesome job. I would be curious to know what adjustments you made as I need to do some similar ones and seem to be having problems.

I used a pattern piece (only the yoke) to cut the yoke deeper. I adjusted the crotch.(after 4 muslims and the first pair--each messing with crotch adjustments). I took the side seams in using pins. I also cut the straight leg out of the inseam. I used Angela's as a sorta guide . As you can see my tush is nearly a plus size and square. Not skinny and flat like Angela's pattern, but not as curvy as the plus patterns. I am really proud of this pair. My secret is I worked only a few hours a day with my prime energy and Angela never left my side.. '
