About 5 muslins to get to this point. I'm pretty happy with them, but I would like to get rid of the wrinkles in the back. Any suggestions?

could you please take a picture of the back pattern. Your problem lays on the back crotch length and shape. I have the pattern but I haven't checked the pieces. I've been terrible busy.

I think the pants look terrific! Seems to me the wrinkles are supposed to be there. You have to allow for the body to move. You look awesome in the pants!!!

in order to get rid of those wrinkles, I think what you need is that underbutt dart that starts at the inseam and tapers to nothing at the side seam. Your pants look great!

There seems to be imperfection along the inseam. Is it the material or the sewing? Sorry but I noticed.

Actually, nothing is wrong with the inseam. It is perfectly sewn. I think the grain of the inseam comes into play here. I have a deep center back seam which throws the inseam on a bias, especially if I try to narrow the leg width.

Very nice job! I love your fabric. I haven''t worked with this class yet I just started watching the videos, I hope to start on it after I heal from my surgery (I'm still bedridden at this point, I can't stand at my cutting table). But, I think your pants look great. Are they comfortable when walking, sitting....that may be the test as far as the "wrinkling" goes......but I'm just learning about fitting so I apologize for not having any sugggestions other than you have done a great job!

I purchased the fabric on sale and I do love it! The pants are quite comfortable! They wrinkle quite a bit but I still wear them. Hope you heal quickly!

I love the fabric and the fit. You did an awesome job! Did you narrow the leg? Thanks
