I think I mentioned yesterday that I wanted to try taking the wedge out lower down the leg, to avoid messing with the crotch area. Well, Glenda confirmed my opinion this morning, so I've gone ahead and pinned in that change. As you can see in the photos below, this was obviously a good move.
The large dragline has gone from the front.
The back is looking much better than it did yesterday with the higher wedge. I suspect there are still some wrinkles in there, but I'm not sure which ones are caused by the pins and which ones will need pattern alteration.
From here, I will transfer this change to my blueprint, then cut another test pair. I'm fairly happy with the fit of these pair, so I'll use some reasonable fabric so they will (hopefully) be wearable in public when I'm done.
