I appreciate the comments regarding the fitting of pants as I, too, have had a problem of pulling across the front of the thigh. I was fortunate to have a fitting buddy with considerable fitting skills who zeroed in on the problem area: the crotch. We used a weight on a crotch length string to determine the point where the crotch seam and the inner seam cross. On me the front crotch needed to be lengthen almost one inch. This process does require two people as I would never have been able to mark the exact point on the muslin.
Thank you for the instructions for using Joyce Murphy’s method. I had remembered reading the article, but could not remember the details.
I am please to have so much information, especially on my first excursion into the discussion group. sewcheck
