Wow! A lot of work, but so worth it. These are looking good.

The fit of your pants looks really good, you must be so pleased with the results. Well worth the effort you have gone to.

I agree that these are looking really good and they are comfortable and wearable....what more can you ask for? BUT...I thought I was looking at my backside when I saw your version 3 back! I have done many of the same alterations as you and ended with the exact same back appearing to pull at the inner thigh and hanging up on the calf. I wish I had the answer for you......and me! My brain got tired so I have given up for awhile working on the fix. Good luck!

They look good, and prefer the longer look to shorter capri style.

I think they look fantastic! I am hoping one day to have the fortitude to spend the amount of time on fitting that you have.

These look wonderful! Your hard work has definitely paid off with a very sharp looking pair of pants.

Wow! They look great. I admire your persistence. I have a similar problem with the excess fabric in the rear. I did a few muslins of the style arc linda pant and got worn out ans ort of lost interest before finishing the final version... all it's missing is the waistband - how lazy am I?!

Thanks for all the lovely comments. I think I may have made my fitting process sound like more work than it actually was! It wasn't that involved. The real work is still to come, I fear. I'm at the point where I'm not sure what to try next. THIS is normally the point where I give up.

Your pants look lovely and the fit is great. I have the same problem with the fabric getting caught up on my calves and the pulling at the inner thigh. I am still trying to get a great pair of pants but getting closer all the time. As you said, a positive is that what I sew fits a whole lot better than RTW. Congratulations.
