If anyone could offer advice, I would gladly hear it. I am happy with the top of the back but the seat is still too baggy despite shortening the crotch and taking some fullness out from the inner seam below the crotch. The side seam doesn't look great either...

looks as if you need to add a little extra to your calf. That should allow your back leg to drop a little. Your side seams have too much curve in them below you widest point and the mid calf. Try straightening that line. Good luck. It is a major try and check process isn't it?

I am not a fitting expert for sure, but looks like to me you need to let out at the high hip, taking in at the center front, then take in the side seams from your fullest hip to your knee. You will probably have to do the hyper-extended calf adjustment as well. I think you have a super good back crotch fit. Just need to adjust some of the other seams to rid yourself of a few wrinkles. Pinch out an inch horizontally below your seat and pin it just to see if that corrects some of the bagginess. You might also benefit from the hourglass adjustment (taking some out of just the back at the side seam) Super cute style on you!

The diagonal wrinkles on the right show up on my left. Is there a fix ? On this, could we let down a bit at the right side waist seam tapering to mid right waist ? The right side seam seems to be pulled up. Else, undo the crotch adjustment and do a swayback adjustment. Right side only ? Looks complex.
