Hi all!
I got these leggings from Forever 21 and I love them.  They fit me perfectly and even magically fit my friend who is about 20 lbs lighter than me.  Because of these leggings I have discovered my love of them.  Since these fit so well, I want to make more so I can have tons.
I generally know how to make patterns from things, but nothing like this.  As you can see in the pic below, the front is shorter than the back.  How do I show this on the pattern?
I know it would be easier to take it apart and make a pattern that way, but I don't want to!  I would love to be able to just trace it and add a but more for seam and cuffs.
How should I go about showing the differing heights?



Edit: I actually figured it out on my own.  I was going to make it so I had to lay the pattern on the fold, but I realized that I could just make the whole leg pattern flat.  That way I can put the front lower than the back.  It also means less cutting.
Go me!

When in doubt, use more glue!

You just have a legging that is as it;s supposed too be  Wink

Back should allways be higher as the front regarding  anything that  works as pants.

You need more fabric at the back,  unless you wanna be standing up  the whole time .
Or keep pulling the dammed thing up the whole time you sit down  Grin

I knew why that was, so I wasn't wondering why it was like that.  I was just wondering how I can make sure the ones I sew do that as well ^.^
