Pants Fitting, Example 2 | Video
This full fitting is on a model with a fuller seat and thighs than the standard commercial pattern.
In this episode, fitting expert Sarah Veblen walks the viewer through a full fitting of a pants muslin on a model. She assesses the alignment of the grainlines and horizontal balance lines on the muslin, and she shows how to eliminate excess fabric or add space where needed and how to correct the overall drape of the pants.
The model in this video has a fuller seat and thighs than is standard for a commercial pattern. Fit issues with this body type include excess fabric across the front and at the side seams, an incorrect crotch curve, and drag lines across the back thighs. Sarah resolves these problems and demonstrates the pinning of custom-fitted darts at the waist.
