Changing pleats to darts in pants

woggy | Posted in General Sewing Info on

I have a pant pattern that fits but it has pleats in the front.

I would like to change the pleats to a dart or darts.

Can someone tell me how to do that or point me to a book that would illustrate this change?

Thanks so much for your help.
