Oh my, I can not believe that I am finally close to a good fit!!

Apparently the big problem with all the crotch drag lines and extra fabric was solved by making the side seams perpendicular.

They were not off by much, but in just going by a perp. Seam vs the seam allowance, means that about an extra inch is coming out of the front, and half an inch in going back in on the back.

My sides came in very differently and after I sewed the seam, I realize that the side that appeared to have extra extra to take out, was fabric that needed to be there for covering the zipper.....

Take a look and let me know if there is anything else to focus on fine tuning the fit. I am very straight through the hips (like a boy) so there may be a bit extra pull at the waist to get them to stay up!

I think I can solve it by using a little bit of elastic in the back waist. I just signed up for the 1 pattern 3 ways pants class, and that is one of the things she will show how to do (woo hoo!)

Many thanks for all your feedback!!!

Great start on pants! I don't know if the stripes are throwing me off, but it looks like the pocket facing is smaller on the left than the right, which could mean you took more seam allowance on the left side? Or maybe it's the way the fabric is cut? Other than that, it looks to me like the crotch is too low. If you look at your RTW pants, they have an incredibly short front crotch and longer back crotch. Good luck with your pants project and I look forward to seeing what other advice you get!

Yay! Best pair of self-fitted trous I have seen for ages. Isn't taking pics of yourself with the iPad?hard? But you're done well. Both with the fit and the pics. Sorry - you've done an excellent job.

Good job on fitting your pants. There is some extra fabric under your butt. An internal wedge on the back leg will take care of that. Have you watched any of the pants fitting video's on Silhouette patterns website? Lots and lots of information on pants fitting.

using stripes gives a good view of being on or off grainline. Your last photo, back view shows horizontal lines which usually means you need more room. Horizontal lines anywhere are a sign of too tight but you have a good basic pattern for your body shape. Good luck!
