Fitting Comments from Alexandra:
I'm 5'4" with a hip circumference of 42" and wearing a size 12. The pant is based on a model height of 5'8". My personal fitting adjustment shown in this version is an addition of 2" to the waist to hip length to accommodate my personal measurements. No other fitting adjustments have been made. The fabric is a polyester/rayon/spandex blend suiting so the fit is a bit looser then it would be in a more rigid fabric. I think I will try a size 10 in this fabric next time.
