What are you most proud of? It is a challenge to find comfortable pants that drapes nicely for my body type. I have pear shaped and short torso body. My hip size is twice the size as my waist; not to mention there is always a huge swayback on every pant that I have bought. With patience, perseverance and Craftsy, I finally have a perfect pair.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Test the adjusted pattern on muslins. Sometimes, it will take more than once. My project took three adjustments on muslins. It takes time, effort, and huge patience. It's worth it.

Very smooth fit through the waist, tummy, hip and seat. Legs are hanging nicely with a good length. Well done!!

Thank you so very much. Your class is THE best! I've been altering patterns for years to no avail (joined local class, etc). But your instructions just did it! I have a perfect pattern and I'm going to sew more with confidence.
