All you fit experts:
I am IN LOVE with a pair of pants in the June Burda World of Fashion. They are #126 A-C for those of you who get the publication. For those who don’t they are a beautifully cut, stretch, fitted pair of straight leg pants – invisible zip at the side and a stunning yoke cut of three pieces for each front and back. (center yoke and two triangular side insets below pointing in toward center.
My problem: I am too tall! Burda fit me great with simple changes. I have to add 3/4″ to both front and back for crotch depth AND about 1/2 – 3/4″ to the BACK crotch length, which I usually do by slitting the pattern from the crotch to the side seam and then true my seams after. I’m not really sure how to tackle these changes with all the seams on these pants. I don’t want to mess with the lines of the yoke, but I’m pretty sure I will have to. Any thoughts? Has anyone seen these pants??
