Help! I’m trying to customize a jeans pattern — like ready to wear. I made a “muslin” using inexpensive corduroy. I’ve almost got the perfect fit, but I have “horizontal pleats” running from the lower front crotch area (just below the fly) over to the side seams. (You know, the pants are baggy there. On my kids, I would tell them they had “droopy drawers!”)
I think I need to shorten the front crotch. Does that sound right?
