I already finished some ‘proper’ trousers but this time I took a different pattern, that really needs some improvement in fit ;)) because:
The trousers have a bit of a ‘smile’ in the crotch area – not very big, but I want to have a good fit AND look!
My sewing book says that the crotch length is too high and that I should let out the seams of the inner leg.
I don’t really know what I’m supposed to do. Make the seams tighter? Or wider?
Should I leave the side seam as it is or can I adapt that one, too?
My difference between hip and waist is rather big, so maybe this is also part of the issue…?
I would appreciate any comment. Thank you very much,
