The testing process was great. Kennis set up a facebook page so that we could communicate with her and with the other testers about any issues we were having. She was very receptive to feedback about fit and the clarity of the instructions (which by the way are great -- very thorough and with plenty of accurate illustrations).
View B is definitely not the quickest to sew but I love all the details that make them look like a pair of ready-to-wear shorts. These totally filled a gap in my wardrobe.
~ In order to accommodate my derriere -- I added a wedge to the back piece to lengthen the back crotch by 1/2" and also extended the back inseam by 1/4". (I think I could still use a bit more space maybe because the twill pair sit higher than my first pair. I messed up the zipper install on the denim pair so the waist is about an inch bigger. That means they tend to slide down under my paunch but also give me a bit more butt room.)
~ I took a 3/8" wedge out of the front in the twill pair
~ sewed the buttons right through tab on the side without doing a buttonhole
~ I left off the pocket tabs on the twill pair. They look good but I use my pockets too much to want to fuss with a button.
