That's right. I sewed up my third pants muslin and am absolutely fed up with it. I'm going to put it in a storage pile destined for the trash some day. The pattern fits great from the hipline up because that was custom made with duct tape for my body. From the hip down it's McCall's Perfect Jean, except it's not perfect on my body. I'm getting very disgusted with the crotch curve, which has been tweaked countless times.
So I've decided to go straight to a Burda jeans pattern 7863, which I think might be better drafted to my body type. It has a nice, shallow somewhat straight front crotch curve with a deeper back crotch curve. It has to be better than what I'm working with. I've never used Burda patterns before, but bought a few last October including the jeans pattern. So, Burda, here I come! I'll just cut some extra wide seam allowances for fit insurance.
Normally I'd just keep plugging away but I'm just so tired of this muslin. There comes a point where one realizes that it's time to move on and I'm there. So adios Perfect Jean. You're not so perfect for me. Movin' on to my first Burda pattern.
