You're trying on a pair of pants with stretch that are meant to be fitting, everything looks good until you spy the inner thigh (on one or both legs) - there's a baggy bit that sticks out, making it look like I don't know what but not right - what the heck? If that makes no sense to you, here's a (poor) example:
|See that bump on the inner thigh of the right leg? It was difficult to get a good pic but hopefully, you'll get a better understanding.|
My hack solution? Pinch out that excess (you can measure and mark - I usually just eyeball it), marking the beginning and end of it with pins. Turn your pants inside out and mark a new stitching line that gradually blends with the original stitching line.
|The new stitching line - it looks longer than necessary here but the darkness of the first photo didn't show all of the excess.|
The new seamline isn't always as graduated as this one either, I remember one pair in particular where the top near the crotch was like a big horseshoe - looked strange off but perfect on - there was a lot of excess at the top of the inner leg in those particular pants for some reason, must be something to do with the way the shape sits on your shape?
You can see I've had a couple of goes at taking out the excess in these - I'm usually conservative to start with (until my patience runs out).
|Weird inner thigh pockets gone.|
Could it be that I'm really the only person this happens to?
