By the way, where is everybody? Come next Tuesday, it’ll be back to work for everyone! No more slacking off! In the meantime, put on your thinking caps and play with this one. Thatcher writes:
My wife works as a pattern maker for a small clothing company in St. Petersburg, Russia (Freakadelik.com) and we have used your site to gain a wealth of information over the past year since finding your site. So first of all, thank you for a wonderful resource. My wife and the two other girls she works with have a problem that we hope you can help with.
The inner thigh region of all the pants they make always produce vertical folds that no one likes. Despite numerous attempts to construct pants that don’t have this problem no one has any idea what to do. I’ve attached 2 pictures, one is ‘our problem’ with a arrow showing the problem area, and also a picture ‘what we want’ from [deleted] company that illustrates what they would like to have this area look like. Your insight into this problem would be *greatly* appreciated.
Below are the two photos. Thatcher’s photo is to the left.
So friends, for grins and giggles, have at it. My money says this is a two part issue. For one, the styling of each are different which plays into the solution. I think the front piece is too big, right where that crotch curve forms. The opposite of what creates a camel toe. What say all of you? Feel free to send in sketches or upload them and include a link in your comment. That is if I can chase you guys out of bed or wherever it is you’ve been hanging out lately . Back to work everyone!
