PatternMaster Boutique 4: Pants sloper III

My last sloper had too much crotch in the front.  You can see here when I bend forward slightly....yuck!
 Here it is with the excess pinned out. 
 Now with the excess pinned out I remeasured my crotch length using the bottom of the waistband to locate my waist.  Whooa!  25.5!  That's a long way from the 28" I used in my first sloper.   I remeasured the crotch length while wearing my first sloper and I got 27" because of all the extra fabric.  Here is the third sloper with the new crotch length.  Much better!

PatternMaster Boutique4 : Pants sloper II

Well here is the second sloper for my pants.  You can see the first sloper here.  The crotch is better but I think I can still reduce the crotch length.  Also, my butt looks like it's melting from the side.  That's not a good look for me.  I'm not sure how I will remedy that yet.  It may take care of itself when I reduce the croth length further, or I may need to raise the hip depth one inch.  We'll see!
