The first muslin I wanted to tackle was my Thurlow shorts. I've got them where I'm mostly pleased, but have an issue in the back that I can't seem to fix. Please help!
(oh, and excuse the striped underwear)
Front view. Looks good - I have one leg higher than the other to test what I like better
(the right, my left is the winner)
Side view - I know my seam line is tilting toward the front - sigh. I am sure this is due to my protruding upper thighs. But this is something I can live with
Back view I'm happy with - and impressed I got this clear of a picture while twisting!
Herein lies the problem. Under my butt cheek there is a poof of fabric. See the following pictures
Most of my shorts come in like this to hug the cheek better...
But these fall flat, straight off my butt. How do I get them to taper in more? I tried a dart on the back leg - no luck. I tried taking in the side seams more - no luck.
One last front view
Any advice on how to get rid of that excess fabric without messing up the rest of the short bottoms? Or am I just being too picky here? Help! and Thanks in advance :D
