I’m trying to draft a pattern for men’s pants but I’m struggling to draft the back piece. Can anyone help?

Many thanks!

    for the back piece you need your back hip measurement, hip depth, back waist, inseam and side seam. Draft the the block as you would the front but take in the dart or waist difference at the centerback. Then raise new center back 1-1 1/2" depending on person high. the difference between your inseam and side seam is your crotch depth. which should match the front. Take your front piece and place it over back draft and trace side seam to match same with inseam . on some occasions the back inseam is longer than front but you can stretch the front one while sewing to fit. Oh and your crotch extension on back jean is 1/2 back hip width.

    I hope this helps
