I have a pants pattern that is fitting me almost perfectly. The crotch area fits beautifully in both front and back.
The only problem is a vertical fold that seems to start from my back waist about one-third in from the side seam. The question is – is it a pull or a drape?
When I pull the waistline seam up at the point of the fold, the fold goes away. However, the fold looks more like a pull to me than a drape and logic would seem to require that I lower the waist seam, not raise it. However, when I lower the waistline the fold doesn’t go away.
Does anyone have an idea what could be the problem?
