Hi Leslie. I have a similar shape to you and the back looks to me like you need a little more length (side seam) because of the high hip. Try lowering the pants from the side waist to see if it affects the diagonal pull at the thigh. I have found this to be the case because of my fluffy high hips. You could almost allow a little more width across the derriere as well. I get the same pulls as seen in your photo and have found just a little more length and width helps. The front looks fantastic!

RPL is my favorite pants fabric and you've made such a nice pair of pants from it. I really do think you should try the adjustment Debbie uses, even if it doesn't work out. But if it does, you'll be so much happier.

Leslie, thanks so much for this review. I agree that it makes a huge difference when you take the time to be a perfectionist with cutting, pressing and so on. Thanks for the waistband tip. As to the fit issues, I am a very similar body type and had the same problem with a Burda pant that is sitting in my UFO pile. Do you think scooping the back crotch a bit would help? Your pants fit you perfectly in the derriere, so that may not be the solution, but if you or anyone else has success with that or the "knock knee" adjustment, please advise! Thanks again.
