McCalls M5633 Cargo Pant-Entry 5-The Bum Adjustment

The Bum Adjustment.  Butt Adjustment. Protruding Rear-End Adjustment. Junk in the Trunk Adjustment, whatever you want to call it adjustment.  That is my next step on these pants.

Although I’ve expanded the hip line to give me enough room around the hips I neglected to take into consideration the room I need in the body cavity area.  The area between the Center Front and the Center Back, or the negative space between these two pattern pieces.  So as a result, I have a rear crotch line that wants to slightly divide me into two distinct parcels on the back side which causes a pull at the waistline because there just isn’t enough room.

The fix should be easy enough, I just need to add a little bit of extra length at the crotch level.  In theory this should move outward the start of the rear crotch curve thus giving me a little bit more room under the buttocks.  Does that make sense?  It’s a theory so let’s get started and see if it works…
