What are you most proud of? My pants fit not 100% but I am content with the result. I had to make the following modifications: 1) reducing the length of the legs at the L/S line 2 1/4" and at the bottom 1 1/4", 2) sway-back and flat seat alteration 3) scooping out the lower back crotch curve and take in the princess seams to remove the excess fabric under the buttocks 4) adding 1/4" to the back crotch point to improve the fit

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Never give up and make one more muslin if necessary. Sandra will always help to improve the fit. Thank you for it.
