I did get a brand new SFD Pant BACK drawn yesterday, and I worked ALL DAY except for Church today on fixing the crotch curve. I have spent countless hours in the past doing this. I really want to perfect it, but I'm not sure I can. What I have now is a COMEDY. I even made you a video of it so you can get a real good laugh.
Here is a picture of my FRONT and my BACK with the corrections made to match MY shape. Phylly says I have to call it a "bowl". If this makes sense to you, I hope you will let me know. I am going to make up a muslin of it -- just to a few inches below the crotch -- tomorrow morning. I can't imagine how this could possibly fit the front of me, but if I read all the directions right, it should fit perfectly. AND if this thing is right, I have been making my crotch DEPTH almost 2 inches too long for years, and my crotch length has been too short. I hope that someday the LIGHT COMES ON in my brain, and I can "see" this.
Maybe Glenda can help me with this, but what it APPEARS to show is that I need a lot of crotch "length" UNDERNEATH me, and not so much in a raised waistline.
Okay. I am in no way advising anyone to try this, but here is the pattern I'm going to try in the morning:
