I’ve made a duct tape hip form and have transferred the form using a pattern I like for the shape of the pant legs. Currently there are no ‘smiles’ at the front and back crotch area. I know that’s good! Here’s what I’m finding now as well as seeing it on store bought pants especially jeans. Before I describe the area, I’m wide across the hips and flat across the seat. I also have saddle bags. Anyways, looking at the test pants on me, at about the hip area or a tiny bit below, a portion of the back pant leg comes forward for about 19″ or so down along the side seam. Both sides do this. It starts with a little fabric coming forward at or just below the hip area gradually increases and then eventually tapers to nothing approximately at the 19″ mark. It doesn’t look flattering at all. It has the appearance of English riding pants. Are there any suggestions to eliminate this and keeping the side seams plumb?
Also, looking at the back of the pants on me, at the back left inseam, there are two diagonal wrinkles on each leg. The first set begins on the left leg about 4″-6″ below the crotch line along the inseam and angles down towards the back of my knee area. The second back left inseam wrinkle is several inches below and angles in the same direction as the first. The second set of wrinkles (looking at me from the back), begin along the right side seam beginning about at the crotch line and angle downward at about the same angle as the left back leg. The second wrinkle forming along the right back side seam is several inches below the first and follows the same angle. I know wrinkles indicate something is hanging properly but in my case, what could it be?
I’m looking forward to hearing from you. I’m learning a lot!!
