The back of the pants look good. I will increase the back rise by about 1.5cm.
The front is ok but I do have a lot of excess fabric in the crotch area. Pants for Real People suggest a Flat Lower Belly Adjustment.
I did originally make up the muslin in the largest size 18 as I was inbetween sizes. I took it in an extra 1cm down the side seams and 0.5cm down the inseam, so I am a size 16 in this pattern.
The fabric I chose was a navy stretch cotton drill from Spotlight but I really don't think it has enough stretch. I can stand in these pants but sitting is a bit difficult... A new fabric is needed.
- Increase back rise by 1.5cm
- Remove 1cm from front crotch seam (Flat Lower Tummy adjustment)
- Increase calf width by 1cm
- Size 16 not 18
- Select a fabric with more stretch (also a softer fabric)
