I've found a crotch curve that works...Yep, it's a Burda I don't care for the shape of the legs. I have another pattern I'm working on now Butterick 5534. I like this leg look. I've already adjusted the Butterick where needed(length and depth). Now I'm going to get the crotch "curve" looking like the Burda. When laying the Burda on top of the Butterick, where to I line up the pattern? Do I line up the crotch or the top center back seam? Or is there another area that the patterns should meet, before altering?

To see the body space you get from the crotch curve, put the inseam seam lines of the from t and back pattern pieces together at the few inches at the top so the crotch lines are level.

Fictionfan, are you saying rest the Burda(back)crotch and the Butterick(back) crotch on top of each other? I'm looking to get the curve right.
