^ Not only is this a gratuitous picture of my ass, but you can see the seam line where I sewed in an entirely new butt. I'm all class.

My butt has been referred to everything from the affectionate 'bubble butt,' to the insulting 'big ass,' to the i'm-not-sure-what-you're-saying 'duck butt.'* Now I've got a new bodacious-butt-related term: the full butt adjustment.
Yes ladies and gentlemen I have entered the world of pant making, become intimately aware of the curves of my bonita applebum and learnt just what a full butt adjustment entails. The pattern is Colette Clover and the whole process was much easier and less traumatising than I was expecting.
These are a wearable muslin and the amount of unpicking, stretching, re-stitching, and manipulation is a testament to the durability of japanese cotton. You can bet your shakira-shaker that I will be making more Clovers, perfecting the fit and experimenting with additions like pockets and piping.

*Apparently 'duck butt' is a thing where your skirt is tighter on your butt than your legs, and therefore kicks out like a duck's tail. Whatever grade 10 crush, I don't even care.
