Pants generally fit me great in the front, but ride down in the back. How do you know which end of the back pattern piece crotch curve to add to? Do I add at the inseam? Or, do I add at the waistband. I thought I'd ask before I just try. Hmm, maybe add at both ends & cut off the one I don't need during the fitting process. Maybe I've just answered my own question.

If your pants are riding down in the back, you need more room in your booty. Think of your seat like your bust, some of us have more curves than others. On your pattern, slash from your center back seam at the hip line to the side seam, not cutting through on ss. Open it up, just like a dart till your back waist is in the correct position, this will not change your side seams or make your crotch sag and your pants won't do the booty dip no mo.

Depending on your shape, it may be the case that you need to lower your crotch curve to accommodate a low backside. Your backside can be flat and low, also causing riding down in the back.

It might be protruding & low. You have a point about the lowness. Gravity is rough! Just when you figure out your fitting issues, your body has to go & change.
