Q&A with DonnaDeCourcy

DonnaDeCourcy asked:
I made a crescent leg adjustment, and also graded from a 12 inch waist to a 14 hip. I narrowed the leg. The pattern was drafted from Silhouette Yoga Pant, and I had to put in a zipper on the left side, extended the waistband to add a button. These pants feel very comfortable, but I am wondering if there are recommendations to improve the fit and reduce the drag lines. Does it mean that I need to add more fabric across the hips? (It looks a little tight, but feels very comfortable, and I'm known for wearing my pants too baggy.)
DonnaDeCourcy answered:
I will definitely try that on the next pair, Kathleen. I've bought two more lengths of fabric to refine the fit. I am determined to improve. Thanks for the tips and encouragement.
