I reduced this pattern 92% from size 36 and printed it.

But I feel they are still large.

Next time, I intend to reduce a thigh width.

Because I thought that I want basic pants, I am very glad to get them. The article of the blog : (http://blog.livedoor.jp/miho555/archives/51477797.html)

Material Notes

cotton stretch (Reggiani),

waistband facing : cotton stretch print (JUST CAVALLI)

    to Jj, The reason why I choose the method is I would shrink length of crotch as you say. When I watch a Burda size chart, height setting is 168cm in all sizes. Size 32 – size 60 are the same height! This is inconvenient for me.I don’t like that legs are seen shorter when a knee position falls down. I can keep a reasonable knee position by reducing. The length of the zipper slit becomes shorter by reducing, but it did not become difficult to wear it.You try it and tell an impression if possible!

    I would love to have seam allowance shrink to 1/2" but is it going effect the length of crotch too??…especially the zipper area…or may be the 92% doesn’t change that much… I’m going try to download a few pieces of pattern to try on. How much s.a. do you get after the shrinking business?

    >to Jj, Because I am short, I thought that the normal grading did not work well. I think that this method is good for the woman of the short and thin figure. Please watch out because seam allowance width becomes narrow!

    Nice pants. I’ve never thought of reduce/down grade the size like this way before, did it really work?
