I have made the Style Arc Linda pants, and while I'm reasonably happy with them, there is something hinky going on with the front crotch seam.
Pants 1
Pants2
Pants3
Pants4 - though this could be how I'm posing?!

At the moment, the only change I have made is to add 1cm to the CF seam going straight down to where it meets the crotch curve.
I am not sure if this issue is from the added width or quite how to fix it so they fit better.

Any ideas from the pants fitting doyennes of PR?

You need more length in the front crotch. Unzip a bit and drop the pants until those smiles disappear and note the amount you've lowered your pants.
You need to take better pictures of your garments if you want good advice. Preferably not in a mirror. You need 4 pictures, straight on front straight on for each side and straight on back.
If you don't have anyone to take your picture use your self timer on a tripod or even on a table.

Agree with Nancy. Before I got my tripod I set my camera up on the ironing board with stacks of books as well to get just the right height. HTHs.

Actually you need more depth. Length would be the length of the crotch from cf waist through the legs to the back waist. the depth is measured vertically from waist to crotch. However if you lower the crotch you are also lengthening the crotch.

Nancy is probably right, however, I sometimes get this if the crotch seam is too shallow - i.e., if I need to sew the crotch curve a bit deeper. If Nancy's fix doesn't work, give this a try.
