My main problems have been understanding adjustments needed for the crouch area, and identifying corrections to alleviate wrinkles across the front. I've recently made a new pair, a wearable muslin as such, that I'm pretty much satisfied with.
Using the curve ruler that I bought a few months ago has helped me better understand how to transfer my crouch shape and measurement to the actual pattern. For this pattern I added about a 1/4" to the back crouch point and 1 full inch to the actual back curve (if that makes any sense). It worked pretty good this time, but these are knit pants. Next I will need to try the same theory to woven fabric to see what I get.
I do plan to make this same pattern in another knit fabric that I have, but since this wearable muslin wore well for me all day at work I'm counting them as part of my #2018 Make Nine challenge. Four down and five more to go.
