What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's going to take more than one try. Don't get discouraged.

Looks great to me - if possibly a little tight in the back crotch area. But that may be just how you are standing at the time! Are you ready for "real" fabric yet?

Hi Fubar - these appear to be a good fit to me with the exception that they are made to sit at the waist. They look comfortable to me.

Fubar, I love your muslin! :) Did you intentionally fit the pattern to ride on the high hip instead of the waist? That is what I plan on doing because I'm very short waisted and pants that sit at the waist are very unflattering on me.

I was able to use a "D" waist band based on my waist measurement. I didn't change it any.

P.S. I didn't use stay tape in my muslins (because I am lazy and didn't have anyaround the house). It may account for some of the slouch. I did take a 1/2 inch off of the center back.

Nice fit.
