Hello Carol, I loved the article on pants and fitting from the waist down. I have acually come to the same conclusion but not in the erudite and organized fasshion which you contributer did. .There is one thing though ,I wish that the author had done more about how to transfer the fitting changes onto the pattern. For instance in the photo of the person in the pants where the waist band had to be lengthened , there is a sizeable gap in the center front seam between the waist and the hip line . Where would the fabric be added in ? To the sides to the front center or as a wedge shape either side of the center front???. I hope that i dont come across as too stupid ! I actually think this would be a good topic for an article as I often find that in adding fullness in one spot I stuff up another .So I guess the business of adding very targetted fullness is what i am talking about.
