What advice would you give someone starting this project? I wish I had watched the entire class before starting the project. There are a few things I would have changed. I need an honest assessment of the fit. My sewing friends are all quilters! As I look at the pictures, it seems I don't have it quite right yet.

I don't think the pants are commentary at all, way too much fabric. if i sign up for the class I prefer the more tapered, ankle pant such as the Eileen Fisher pant. elastic waist with a zipper and tapered leg. Something a little more modern.

This looks like a project that needs altering not a finished project!

The pants are too baggy and not flattering, is this the pattern she recommends using?

No, it's a different Today's Fit pattern.

Watch the video and do not expect perfection the first time. I can see the difference, however I think you were kind of afraid of making a mistake. Keep up the good work - be fearless!

Fitting pants can be brutal especially if doing it by yourself. Given your skill level, I would encourage you to perfect fitting with a very simple pattern, perhaps straight-leg, and get your hands on Pants for Real People put out by Palmer/Pletsch. I borrowed it from the library and it brought sanity back to my quest for perfect pant fit. Construction is important but without great fit it's an exercise in frustration (speaking from quite a bit of personal experience).
