Your shorts are really cute. I have made this pattern a couple of times and Jalie jeans are not the best fit for me either. It seems that Jalie's thighs are small for me. It does not look like the issue for you, but spreading out the pattern there made them more comfy for me. HTH

The way I see it, there are basically two kinds of pants: standing pants - that look nice standing and thereís sitting and moving pants that often donít look so nice. Making the THIRD kind is the real trick. Once you master it, you can use its shape for any pattern you might buy. Iím sorry I cannot recommend a super, current pants book that explains ALL about fitting pants. Thereís more to it that crotch depth. The trick is in getting the shape and angle of the crotch curve correct. If itís too deep they are baggy, if too shallow, they wonít let you sit or move comfortably, etc etc. The book I used is Louise Bameís Pants Fit for Your Figure - 1978. If you can find it used, itís still very pricy. There are, however, some good fitting books on the market. The Complete Photo Guide to Perfect Fitting is the best recent fitting book I could get through my local library in Canada. Itís a US book. It would explain what Iím referring to. If you measure and trace your best fitting pants, or shorts, you could compare the front and back crotch seam lengths, and it would at least give you a good start with the shape and angles. Tracing the curve can sometimes be a challenge. The trick is to find the correct SHAPE of the crotch curves and angles. Your shorts look okay, but if they arenít comfortable, then itís in that crotch seam, its curve and angle that comes up the back. If I can find a good online tutorial, I make another post to this, okay? Give me some hunting timeÖ or maybe I could figure out how to post a sketch on your review. I could draw it up. I hope this has helped a bit. I like sharing knowledge but itís sometimes hard so far away.
