Pants, especially jeans, usually take some time in perfecting. Finding the sweet spots so they look nice and you can sit AND move in them is a challenge. …. Wish I could make paragraphs… IMPO, you can’t go wrong by investing in a good general sewing book. A book is often faster than hunting something down on the web. There are consistent, familiar sketches and you can carry it to the ironing board, next to the machine, or wherever you need, and sometimes it’s nice just to have a better picture than the pattern provides (or doesn’t provide). For general sewing, I prefer books with sketches rather than photos. I also think the older books are better than many of the newer ones. Somehow, they seem more interested in teaching you to sew rather than trying to sell you a fancy book. A good fitting book is also a wise investment. … … …Tips: Measure several of your best fitting pants - or tops - and keep a record of them, along with your body measurements at the time. Include the shape and depth of front and back crotch curve, and back inseam to the waist. If you write the pattern or RTW label, colour and fabric it will help jog your memory later. Write on the envelope “pinstripe stretch” plus major adjustments, or defects. … … The ease allowance in patterns, even in the same brand and similar style can vary a lot. I bought 2 Simplicity shirts patterns in Sept. The difference in finished bust is 5” for same size. I could see the one had more ease but would never have guessed it to be that much.

Great review and yes, trace a smaller size or two because you worked wonders with these as much as you had to alter them to fit! Fantastic pant and great job!
