The good news: aside from the waistband, which I still have NO idea how to draft even after watching the Craftsy video due to having to make a dart in the muslin, therefore throwing off the grainline in anything I draft unless I just seam it at the center back, the jeans pattern is done. And I know it's hard to see, but I think the front turned out pretty good.
The bad news: The back is another story. I just keep looking at it and saying "whaaaaaaaaaaaat?"
I mean, look at that back crotch seam. After all that muslining (because you know that's a verb), this is the curve I ended up with in my attempt to fit what my Trinidadian friend refers to as my "black girl booty" without making it too tight. Plus trying to fix my usual gapiosis issues, and altering the seamlines to attempt to make them look like a straight line going down the side of my leg.
This is, undoubtedly, the weirdest-looking pants pattern piece I have seen in my entire life. Does that mean it's crazy enough to just possibly work? Stay tuned...
