Inseam problem – asking for help

DCarnes | Posted in New to Sewing on

Hello members,

I’ve encountered an unusual problem with a pare of flare pants that I made from scratch.

For some reason, on one pant leg only, the inseam is protruding to the front and is also quite visible from the front. This also affects the fall of the fabric, which is distorted.

The other pant leg is perfect, I love the fall and everything. There is nothing wrong with the pattern, I checked, I also distinctly remember I cut the fabric correctly on the grain.

It baffles me that one leg is as it should be, and the other not. Please see the photos attached.

Fabric composition: 70% polyester, 25% viscose, 5% elastane

Does anyone have an idea of what might’ve happened?

Thank you.

    I've only ever seen this if the fabric is off grain. Is that possible?

    Hm. Could it be that it's no longer on grain because of the heat/steam when pressing the seams open? And it somehow distorted the grain? If the fabric had been off the grain from the beginning, the other pant leg would have the same problem, but it doesn't.
