There's nothing worse than having ill-fitting pants. Because of all the different measurements that go into making a pair of pants, there are many ways it can go wrong. If your pants are too long, that can be annoying but it's also easy to fix. If the crotch area is too long and is sagging or it's too tight creating horizontal wrinkles, then what are you supposed to do? In this tutorial, we tackle pattern alterations to the crotch length. We demonstrate both how to shorten and lengthen the crotch because we know that either of these issues can be uncomfortable. This alteration is done to the pattern stage but I recommend that you always create a muslin after making any alterations. It's very important to test the fit so you can make sure that you get the best fitting pants you can.
