Have you always wanted to sew your own perfectly fitted pants? Or do you sew your own pants but still are left with subpar results—-those pesky back let wrinkles, a droopy crotch, etc.? Are you tired of the mounting frustration of not being able to get your pants to fit “just right”. Take a deep breath—-your struggle is understandable and quite common. Fitting is difficult for so many because it requires one to understand how their depth, length, and circumference measurements of their lower body all interact. That can be pretty tricky! But I’m here to tell you that pants fitting doesn’t have to be all that complicated and actually isn’t. It really just depends on where you start with your fitting process and training one’s eye to assess their figure and understand their fit needs.
