I asked this in the curvaceous craftsters sewing board but thought more people might see it here..

Hello!

I've got a few pairs of work pants that are too big pretty much everywhere, but especially in the butt (like most of my pants)
Does anyone have any tips that might help me take them in to minimise the baggy, pooped in my pants look I get at the moment?

Buying pants that fit properly isn't an option because they don't exist. :/

Have you tried men's pants/patterns?  I have a thick waist and narrow hips, so most women's wear is clownalicious on me, with huge baggy butt and thighs, but men's pants fit well.

When I do wind up with women's pants, I usually take a lot off the hips using the outside seam, but have had some luck preserving pockets by taking in the crotch seam.  I experiment by pinning and sometimes basting until I get a fit I like.  You may have to take off the waistband, fit the pants, then put the waistband back on.
