The muslin is a mess of wrinkles, but I feel like most of them are fixable. I'll be googling around, but I'd love opinions and feedback:

I experimented with the legs; the original was way too wide and baggy for me. My first alteration was to take them dramatically for a straight pant (right leg in the above picture). TOO straight! I need some width in the leg to balance out the width of the pant around the torso. Then I took them in between the crotch and the knee but let them flare out beneath the knee (left leg in the above picture). Neither is perfect, but the wider-below-the-knee look is more flattering.
These pants look almost nothing like my Sunni Inspirational Pants, but then I don't look much like Sunni. If I can get a pair of menswear inspired pants that are chic and comfortable and don't make me look like a Kazakhstani tour guide at the height of the Cold War I'll be happy.
