Thanks for such a helpful review. It was really interesting to see how relatively minor adjustments to the CB and crotch curve resulted in a significantly improved fit.

the pants fit you so well- great sewing and what a difference small alterations can make in fit...having seen your pants guess I'll be putting this pattern on my wish list. Great pair of summer pants.

Great review. Really? Those tiny adjustments brought you from baggy to perfect fitting backside? Very nice work. They have just the right amount of ease for comfort without the old lady look.

Hi Barb, yes that's all I did by way of adjustments, the same as on the Linda pants. I think the key was the small amount of extra crotch depth (back only) the adjustment on the CB seam just narrowed them slightly. Glad the fitting pics were helpful, will try to include these in all reviews.
