I've been puzzling over a question on trouser rise. Some of the high rose drafts on the forum have inseams of 32' and a total rise of 44'. If one has an inside leg measure of 30.5 should there also be a proportionate decrease in rise?

you just measure this.

If your inseam is shorter than 32' your outseam is (hopefully) shorter too. But you can not assume 1.5 ' shorter - it depends on you body (and hip measurement)

Inseam has virtually nothing to do with rise. One of the main reasons I began sewing was because my rise was 2" shorter than what was considered "average/normal" and my inseam was 2" longer than normal, (4" with heels and dress trousers).

Thanks all (in hindsight that should be obvious). The last pair of high rise trousers I made (trews) felt ridiculously high and have some fitting issues so planning to start afresh at some point, hence the question!

Normally you start from your natural waist: But not easy to find. With men I take it with 2 fingers above the hip bone. In your case I would shorten the trouser 4 cm. So they are a bit over your natural waist which I assume is  under the black stripe.Baste fold  and check

Our teacher would ask you to put your hands on your hips, that's where your natural waist normaly is. Works most of the time

Natural waists, if normal figured is at the small of the back.  If you are carrying a few pounds about the middle then this can make the natural waist seam high. My tip: run your thumb down your spine with slight pressure pushing forward, at the moment you feel you're toppling forward, stop, you have found your natural waist.

The picture, it really is not that high. True high trousers are higher than that. Those are between moderate and high.
