I happened to have a flexible ruler and had experimented a little until I now have some actual “proof” that this is a serious option (the Fitting and Pattern Alteration: A Multi-Method book is on its way to me (terrific library) with more info).
I would have thought that in such stretchy fabric as the one I just used used, my crotch alterations would make them near perfect. Not so! My issue is actually that I have a curve just as the one you have drawn here, Maria (and dipping a little below the crotch line, too).
I am now wondering if intuition is enough for me to apply my new “body crotch curve” that I have just drawn to stretch fabric, my projects being in stretch velour, and a second pair in very stretchy Merino wool. I imagine I would probably not need as pronounced a curve as intended for woven fabrics. Yes? The second important issue is to add enough fabric to the side seam to experiment with. Any comments?]]>
I’m so glad you like it! Let me know how it works out for you!]]>
