You are right, the pattern drawing looks really cute. Sorry that it didn't work out like that.

Well, I think you're right about the drawing, but if you look at the drawing next to the one pictured on the drawn model, it does look much wider. Also, overall, these may just be too big for you. Sorry these didn't turn out as you had hoped.

Sorry that you didn't achieve the pants that you wanted. I have to agree with Nancywin though. The illustration of the pant does look slim, but the technical drawing, as it were, looks more like what you sewed. It looks like a much wider leg to me. Are you sure you started with the right size? From all your fitting issues, could you have needed a much smaller pattern size to start with?

Lovely trousers Jenni, but I know you are very slim in real life so it could be just that you needed to use a much smaller size to achieve the same look as the drawing. But they still look good on you as far as I can see! Great project as usual.

Really, it's a very good looking muslin. You just need to gain a lot of weight and grow taller. Just kidding, but it does look like a child trying on a grown-up's pair of trousers! You've had such great results with Marfy before; it's too bad you have a dud with this one. I love Marfy's drawings, but the stylized pictures don't always show how a normal person would look wearing the clothes when assuming normal postures. If you had measured the pattern flat, do you think it would have helped you avoid the oversizing? I never think to do that...
