I deleted my post which hopefully, you didn't see, about my work problems. It depressed me, so I removed it. I went yesterday and was able to get everything resolved at least through the holidays. I'm taking off my worry hat until NEXT YEAR. Sounds like a long time away, doesn't it?
I am delighted to report that the plain old, by-the-book, SFD pant pattern fits me really well! I didn't have to do all that crotch bowl stuff to it.
Here are pictures of my turquoise pants with the crotch curve correction in them. This fabric is a stretch cotton. I used the SFD system, but made the crotch curve match my "bowl". What this actually does is make the actual crotch portion quite long and the front and back seams above that quite short.
