After you have made a body mold and crotch curve template of your body space for adjusting your pant pattern, you need to learn how to use it. I found a blog article that explains how to align your pattern, position your template on the pattern, and draw the corrected lines. It includes text and photos.

The mccalls.com.au web site is no longer active. I wrote the main mccalls.com web site to ask about this article.

All I can find at this time is the single photo from Pinterest which shows that the template is used for the bottom curve only -up to the hip line. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/75927943692773163/

"We donít have the article online, but it is from this issue of Vogue Magazine Vogue Patterns Magazine June/July 2009

Great--thank you. I own practically every available tool and gadget on the market but don't have complete instructions on how to use the things! I would appreciate a book written on how to actually use all the toys out there for sewing.

Ah, yes, for those of us who made the crotch curve a la PR...this is the missing link. Thanks, Ashford.
