Hey guys,

I really want to figure out the secret to trouser-making, finally.  Until now I have basically used pants that fit me and extracted patterns from them to make with other fabric.  Though that works, I want to be able to draft my own patterns from scratch.  I am looking specifically for resources on drafting the angle and shape of the inseam and variable positions of the waistband.  Can anyone suggest some resources for this?  Books, websites, articles, or really good patterns (low-waisted, plzkthnks!)?

Thanks guys!

I've never drafted my own trouser pattern (I've just made some from patterns) but I've read that you can use a flexible ruler to get the right shape for your crotch seam from belly button round the back.  Flexible rulers are awesome, by the way.  They can help you figure out seam shapes for all sorts of things around you that a measuring tape won't hold.
