"Diaper Butt" is basically the same as "Clown Butt" excess fabric under the rear. I edited my review to show a picture of "Diaper Butt".

I think your pants look great. Regarding the fix for "diaper butt". It appears the gathering is at or below crotch level. Did you do the dart higher or actually on the leg? Thanks for any ino

Becky I think you are being too hard on yourself. To me it looks like you've achieved an excellent fit both in the front and the back. I have this pattern and you've inspired me to pull it out and put in on the 'to make' list for the summer wardrobe. Beautiful! Recently I made a pair of yet to be reviewed Burda trousers, my first Burda pants, and I am now another convert. The fit was so good, with hardly any adjustments. As soon as they get hemmed I'll review them. Enough about me though..this is your review. You did a great job, thank you, it was a very helpful review.

Those are nice pants! Good job! PS: I call that Penguin Crotch. Glad to know I'm not the only one who has come up with a name for that dreaded phenomenon.

Susan C -- Yes, the excess fabric is seen below the crotch, but the dart I took was above the crotch. Don't ask me how this works, but it does. I just did what my friend and Peggy Sagers told me to do and it worked. Maybe someday I'll understand. Nicegirl512 -- I can't take credit for the term "Diaper Butt" -- Peggy Sagers used it in the seminar. It was a fun seminar!

Congrats on your pants. Even the muslin is better than a lot of RTW.

I am working on these right now and I'm having a little trouble finding the right size, but other than that I love this pattern. I, too, like pants with a smooth front and a side zip.

I just made these pants. I like the fit but thought the legs were a little full. Next time I will taper them a bit. I did not need to make any alterations, but I did top stitch the facing down and slipped a soft piece of wide elastic through the resulting casing. It does not gather, just hugs my waist a bit snugger. Next time I am going to make the view with the buttons on the legs. I love pants with a faced waist.

Big Sis -- I love the idea of stitching down the facing and adding a piece of elastic to give a snugger fit at the waist. I've made a few pairs of these now and after wearing them they do stretch out at the waist and could definitely use that elastic. Thanks for the idea! And yes, I'm going to narrow down the legs too -- the width is great for sandals with a little heel in the summer, but not as graceful with loafers in the fall.
