What are your other three staple pants patterns?

Kathy - Try slashing the pattern back horizontally 2-3" below the crotch. Cut from the inseam to but not through the side seam, then overlap and tape the inseam, reducing its length by about 1/2". Now you'll need to steam and stretch the inseam before you sew it. Tugging on the crotch point as you steam it will turn the crotch shape from an "L" to a backward "J". When you sew the front to the back at the inseam, you might have to stretch the back and slightly ease the front to get them to fit. This alteration makes the back thigh fit much more smoothly, and I do it on every pants pattern, even if I measure and find that a little stretch/ease difference has been built in to the pattern. Hope this is what Nan did!

I found the fit to be similar to that of Nan. I also spread the back (1/2"), and still have wrinkles below. Where did you overlap to remove the wrinkles below the bottom? This has been driving me crazy!
