Question on pants back pattern crotch angle
Hello Helpful People,
I am trying to make the pants template (Refine Your Pants Fit with a Template) from the December issue. Help is needed as my pattern doesn’t match the Threads diagram.
I’m an average sewer, getting back into it, and not great with geometry so I have several questions. (See attached photo for pattern back example)
1) Related to the Threads Pant’s Template does the angle get included in the 2.5″ extension, and if not where does the extension stop.
General construction Q.
2) How does this angle get match to the pattern front? (From a long time ago I remember easing is involved but I do not remember the details and my resources don’t include how to handle the angle.)
3) Why do some pants patterns have this angle at the crotch on the back pattern piece? (see photo) I notice all do not. This particular pant is a relaxed casual pant so I am thinking maybe this is where the extra fabric in the back leg comes from.
Thanks for the help.
