Here is today's version of pants:
To refresh your memory, here is a pic of pants version #1:

the dreaded jodphur effect on the side seams.
Big improvement, eh?
Here is how I approached it. I pinned out the excess fabric under the butt cheeks and this is how that looked:

This was a very productive sewing weekend! I am still waiting for my lining and organza to arrive so I can't start on my Mother-of-the-Bride dress yet. Maybe I will sew some more pants now that I have a better fit. I'll tell you what, those Barb pants sew up really fast. It was nice to reduce the stash a bit, too. Hope you are having good times with your sewing projects!
