I make children's clothes and have used Children's Corner patterns. They fit great for sizes 1 - 3 but 4 - 6 seem to sag in the front...as if there is too much fabric. Any help would be so appreciated.

Although I am not familiar with this company, have you compared the front and back to see if the front (beginning at the inner seam) is cut the same as the back. The front should have a sharper rise than the back.

Hope this helps.

The front should also have a shorter rise than the back

I am guessing that you are talking about elastic waist pants. I usually have my DD try on the pants before I turn down the elastic casing. Then I make a waist-sized circle of elastic and have her put that around her waist over the pants. I can turn down the top of the pants over the elastic. I can just mark along the top of the elastic with a disappearing pen. Using this measure, I can allow for the elastic casing and seam allowance. I just trim the excess and sew the casing. I often find that I have to trim more in the front than in the back - sometimes as much as 2 inches.

I know this is an old post, Becky, but I love your idea. My dgd is coming soon and I can finish the pants for her - all but at the waist and then finish them up per your suggestion. Thank you !
