What materials did you use? Scraps of polyester from my stash

Regarding "I feel I am pretty close to having something that fits well." Are you kidding? That fit looks great! I haven't been able to start my fitting adventure yet, but I've spent years reading fitting books and trying to alter and make my own pants, and if any of my past efforts had resulted in pants that fit and hung as straight and smooth as yours, I wouldn't be taking this class. Wonderful job.

Hi, lovely fit. I need to do the ful front thigh alteration too and have done my 2nd muslin. I added about 3/8" to the front princess seams just in the upper thigh area as my pants were binding when I walked. This worked for me. Just curious what you mean by the inner crotch seam? Are you talking about the front inseam - inside leg. crotch tapering towards the knee? I might give your alteration a try and see what difference it makes. Can't wait to see your final pants.

Hi montycatt1148714. Yes, the "inner crotch seam" I refer to is in fact the front inseam/inside leg tapering to the knee as you said ... sorry about any confusion I should have been more specific! I like your idea of adding to the front princess seam too & would be interested to hear which gives a better fit for a full front thigh. I am nearly finished my wearable muslin (I have been distracted with Christmas & school holidays) and hope to post some pictures soon! Good luck with your project, I'd love to see some pics!

I agree with all...these look really nice! I LOVE the fabric. Hope you were able to make them into a wearable muslin.

Hi Bellbird, You have it almost perfect! Good job! I see only 2 small issues. It may be that your right leg is a bit more developed than your left. The pant is pulling a bit on the right thigh and the right rounded high curve. The easiest way to solve this is to give the right leg more on the sideseams of the front and back (maybe only 1 inch total) between the high hip and the knee. You could also get rid of the lines under the seat by dripping the crotch down seam just about 1 inch on the back crotch seam, not width but depth will give your seat room to sit into the pant without it pushing the fabric down under the seat.

Has anyone tried the pant making class with one pattern? I am a beginner and would like to take it?
