Pants Pattern for High Hips

user-3862652 | Posted in Fitting on

My goal for 2022 is pants that fit.  I have high hips (widest part 3 inches below the waist) and a small waist, so I know I will be making a lot of pattern adjustments.  Even so, I’d like to start with a pants pattern that is as close as possible.  Has anyone else successfully done this?  What pants pattern did you use as a starting point?

    I have the same problem and am on the same mission. I am 5'3", and my hips are about 7-1/2" from my waist, and my hip measurement is 3" less than my high hip. Corrections are very odd looking on a pattern for sure. Right now I am working with Kathleen Cheetham's pants pattern that came in a book called Perfect Plus. I'll let you know how it works out.

    I have a similar issue. I have what I call a spare tire. It makes me hard to fit. I don’t have a solution except stretch pants.
