    The pattern worked for me – I ended up with a nicely fitting pair of pants. Although the size chart suggested I use Back 2, because I have no bum, I decided to go with a Back 1. Once I’d sewn a muslin I was able to make the adjustments I needed for the fit I was after. Who knows, I may also give Back 2 a try just to see how the muslin would turn out.

    I’ve tried many methods over the years to make myself pants I could actually wear and this one WORKED! I started out with back 1 but switched to back 2. After doing the tweaking, I sewed my first pair. I put the zipper in front and sewed the waistband in two pieces–open in the back for more adjustment options. Love them! Next project will be pants with pockets. Thanks, Rae!

    I was fortunate to be able to have a pants fitting done by Rae Cumbie at the sewing expo earlier this year. I made the recommended alterations on the pattern and made a muslin. It fit perfectly! I like this pattern very much and plan on making several pants. The pattern comes with excellent detailed instructions for proper fitting.
