Do you agree that the following alteration will solve the excess fabric under seat problems as in the photos?

 

 

1. Lower the back waistband by as much as needed to clear the folds and

 

2. Lower the crotch by the same amount (as 1.) or until it gets comfortable.

 

3. Scoop out the seat fork in order to take in the vertical excess of fabric.

 

 

I think it will, but would appreciate your opinions.

I have seen so many pictures of trousers with this kind of problem on Styleforum postings that it really makes me wonder what has happened to the pattermaking or trouser draft to get this to happen so consistently.
I would love to see the pattern it came from.

Looks like the back fork needs to be let out, and the seat curve adjusted lower.
Unpick the inseam to the knee, lower the curve and extend the fork , rebaste and try on before adjusting it at the waist.

Thank you so much Terri! Will do!  :yes:

 

I don't have the pattern unfortunately but it was drafted for a European build and I don't know how true it is but I've been told that the Brits are a different shape to the average European which could explain a lot! 

 

Hope all is going well with you.

Interesting!

Something I thought I noticed too from english pattern.
Maybe Schneidergott can remark here - he will know if there is some truth behind that.

If you post pics you should do the front too.

I'd say the Nordics pretty much share the same physiques (Scandinavians, Brits, Germans), but there are still a lot of variations.

My guess is that it boils down to the measurements taken and how the trousers were drafted.

It's really hard to tell without the measurements and the draft images.

If the trouser would have been iron dressed, it would look way better. All the shortage is missing in the back trouser from the knee upwards.
