Can anyone explain two things to me: Why are the backs of a pants pattern usually a little wider than the fronts? Would it make a great difference if they were the same?
How do I cut a wide leg pants pattern to be smaller at the hem? The pattern is elasticated and fits like a dream over the hips, but I would like the hem to be narrower. Should the leg seam curve or be a straight line from the hem to the hip? Do I cut the same amount off all seams?

Burda has a video class you can watch on grading up or down any size if you want to pay…
you can grade the pattern if you take the difference needed for the size you want….
Thank you – I’ll have a look now.
