I suspect this has been answered elsewhere, so please forgive me if I'm being annoying. I would very much appreciate a link to the relevant thread.

I want to make Jalie 2908 in non-stretch. My first muslin (in muslin) I did at the largest size thinking I could just take in at the seams to make adjustments, but it was baggy and unworkable. My second muslin that I simply made at my size on the envelope fits well if VERY tight. I want to add some ease on the yoke, crotch and in and outseams. My plan is to simply take a clear plastic rule, line it up appropriately, and draw my cutting line .5-1" out from the original cutting line. I've done this, but not cut.

My concern is that, as it is larger at points than my first muslin (which was baggy and unworkable) that this will make for baggy ugly jeans. Am I afraid unnecessarily? How else would you add ease to a pattern or convert a stretch denim pattern into non-stretch?

Remember, adding to the seam allowance along concave curves actually makes them smaller, circles are funny like that. Adding to the inseam on the front and back leg pieces will add to crotch automatically.
Where is it larger than your original muslin? Are you taking into account that whatever you're adding will actually be quadrupled around the leg?

Thanks Rhey for that information--about the circles etc.

Art Attack wrote a review and discussed these changes for non-stretch.

Hope this helps...I am planning to make a pair of non stretch too and printed out this review as a reminder.

I'd just add width to the legs from the knee up and to the hip and back yoike at the side seams. You can always sew the crotch deeper if it is too short, but stretch wovens usually only have crosswise stretch, so I wouldn't add length.
