I’m working on the Chado Ralph Rucci pants today. I’ve already lengthened the crotch – whoops, too much – shortened the crotch, made a flat seat adjustment, taken out the waist – whoops, too much – and taken in the waist.
The font crotch is a little bulky, so I’ve scooped it out twice (not even sure this is the right adjustment, but it seemed to work a bit). Right now, I have two layers of basting on the front crotch, so I don’t know if the bulkiness there has to do with that or not. Here are pictures of front and back:
I think the wrinkles on the back right side (which is really my left side) have to do with the way I pinned the zipper seam together. I haven’t put the zipper in yet.
See how bulky the front crotch is? Maybe I’m just use to the beautiful crotch fit of the Loes Hinse Oxfords, but I don’t really like how this looks.
Also, these pants are not as slim as the line drawing would have you think. Refresher on line drawing:
I can live with the fact that they are not as slim as I wanted, but I can’t live with the front crotch mishmooka. Remember, I’ve already scooped the front crotch out twice. I can never remember if that adds volume or reduces volume. I think I need help. . . anyone?
