Finally I thought, the only way to know if the 1.25″ scoop is the solution, is to use it all. 5 minutes later, I had stitched, trimmed and adjusted the waistband. Muslin 3 now has all the final adjustments that Muslin 2 was given. To see the extent of the difference, I’ve posted the final Muslin 3 with next to final Muslin 2
Muslin 3 is both lacking in ease and sporting large diagonals on the leg. IOW neither the trunk of the body nor the legs look as nicely as Muslin 2 AND the fit has hardly improved since Muslin 1 Fit 1
Muslin 1 Fit 1 way back when nothing had to been done to the pattern.
I’m so disappointed I’m disgusted. I put it in the back of the closet for a time out.
