Hi Maria. Many thanks for your great work.

Unfortunately, I can't find part 3 of the pants video. Now using your instructions, trying to connect Point O through R to M, I find there is too much bulge making the pants look like jodhpurs. I'm wondering if I should extend the arc to Point C instead to get a gentler slope.
Er..., am I doing something wrong?
My high hip is larger than the low hip by about 2" . My waist is 10" smaller than high hip. What should I do?

Many, many thanks.

Hello Abimbola

Hello Abimbola

Unfortunately I just haven't had time to make Part 3 of Pants. I actually haven't had time to do anything on my website for at least 3 months now. I hope to get back to it soon, but it won't be for a few weeks yet.

I hope to publish a few booklets soon because I need to start to at least cover the costs of my website. If eventually I can earn an income from it I can write content more regularly, but at the moment I just can't find the time.

Just today it is taking me 2 hours or so to answer comments and emails sent through my Contact Page. That's as much time as I have this week.

In regards to your problems with drafting the pants, Part 3 of the video is probably what you need, but as I said, that video won't be available for a few weeks. I will send you an email when it is (finally) published...

Regards
Maria

Dear Maria,

I'm awfully sorry to just be getting this response this late, in spite of checking daily for the last week or so.

Many thanks indeed for your detailed response. I am sorry to hear how little time you have for yourself between replies and reading content. I do hope you can get a little time off. We would all totally understand because your work is so so detailed, it's like having a personal tutor.

Please take your time and rest up. I will totally wait till you can make the time. In the meantime, I'd be happy to buy any textbook or Instruction Manual or Videos you put out .

Do have a happy Holiday and well done for the superb work.

Cheers.

Abimbola.

Hi Jacquie

Thanks for your kind words. Generally I think myself very lucky and am extremely grateful for what the opportunities I have had in my life, where I live and the people in my life. . Although I believe that we have some control over our lives, I do believe that a lot of things boil down to pure luck. I have been enormously lucky in my life. I try to pay it forward.
