Wearable muslin?

I just completed McCall's 6515, view D.

The pants are too big everywhere except for my waist. I purchase size E5, the smallest is a 14... It is really not as bad as it sounds but the crotch length is too long.

I will most likely wear them one day, but I put the remake in my queue and use the Sandra Betzina "pants fitting techniques" Craftsy course I purchased awhile back.

I think I did a pretty good job with the waistband and zipper insertion, using one of Mimi g's tutorials.

Front view pleats and matched pretty good at the center front seam.
