These pants are quite cute, and do fit better than ready to wear. I fear that many girls do not know much about correct fit. Have you ever noticed how many girls wear jeans with seats cut so flat and small they completely flatten and distort the girl's butt? Very unflattering. The seat of your daughter's pants are near perfect. I would agree that the front crotch line needs to be filled in a bit to form more of a backslash shape (with some of the curve left).

I have the other two Wendy's patterns and have been contemplating this one. This review convinced me to. I have similar figure as your daugher, in the sense that it is more boyish and I love how the front rise is realy low, yet the back is fairly demure.

I agree with Kay. Instead of having the front crotch shaped like an "L", try sloping it a little, like one side of a "V". (I tried to put in a forward slash character here, but apparently we can't do that in comments. It was a blank space.)

I think the back looks good given that this is a jeans style - I don't read the wrinkles as pulling. For the front, try reshaping the crotch curve a smidge (that's the technical term!) by bringing it in, closer to the body i.e. less of a pronounced curve or angle near the bottom of the zip, so as to put a bit of extra fabric where the pulling is pointing. You may also have to shave a corresponding amount off on the front hip curve opposite where you have added extra width at the CF. I hope this idea helps... Kay

Thanks everyone. How do I get rid of the pulling in the front crotch (and in the back). Should I lower the front crotch some more? Any help would be appreciated.

I'll bet it beats the fit you can get in 99% of the RTW pants out there. I think they look great! Okay - I throw in the towel. Another pattern on the wish list.....
