Now measure the waist-to-ground distance, downwards from the origin point and make another horizontal line at point C. This is the bottom line of the pants. Even if you a planning to make shorter the legs shorter than their full length, you will need to place this line as a guide. Although the waist-to-ground measurement can be estimated from the waist measurement, given the height variation in people this seems a very bad idea. Better to have the measurement here.
