Not bad, huh? This is the first muslin before any adjustments. The darts are not sewn in yet. Perhaps I should do that now, but I wanted to get some feedback from you first.
This is what I see, beginning with the first pic:
1. Looks like my right hip is higher than my left. It’s causing the horizontal balance line (HBL) to go up slightly on that side (I’ve decided this is a camera angle issue) The verticle lines look fairly straight (maybe a little bowed on the right side, which may have something to do with the hip issue). There are some diagonal pull lines on the bottom right leg, but I think that’s just because I cuffed the bottom and its pulling a little. Also, there is some extra fabric at the front crotch.
2. The back is pretty amazing, I think. There are some diagonal drag lines on the right leg. I tend to hyper-extend my knees, so I’m wondering if that has something to do with it. The HBL’s look okay, which makes me wonder about the high hip thing. Maybe I’m just seeing things on the first pic.
3. The left side view is interesting. It looks like the HBL’s are tilting downward from the back to the front – the top HBL being the most noticeable. The side seam looks straight enough.
4. The right side view is the same as the left – the top HBL is tilting downward from the back to the front. The side seam looks good here, too. The diagonal pull lines continue on the right side of the leg.
The nice thing about the pattern instructions is that once I determine what the issues are, the instructions will tell me what to do about it. So, I don’t need any advice YET on what to do. I just need observations on what is wrong. Thanks so much for your help. I look forward to your comments.
