Very helpful review, especially with the before/after pics. Your finished product looks great. I think the type of fabric also sets the mood for the look of the garment. Can't wait to see it in a silky version.

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.

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.

Thanks for all the helpful photos. These pants fit you really well, and are beautifully finished inside and out.

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.
