I have been working on Vogue jeans 8330. I really like them so far except for the center back seam. I don't know if it is the fabric or my bubble butt but there is a bump right under where the yoke meets the jeans.

I have topstitched and ripped apart several times. I'm so close to being done with them I can't believe this little thing is holding me back. I have tried light fusible interfacing and straightening the seam (It was kind of rounded to narrow for my waist) which seems to have helped some but it's still there.

I'm not sure if clipping might help but I'm scared to try.

I know if there is anyone that can help me it would be someone at pattern review. I appreciate your feedback. Thanks in advanced.

Here is a link to some pictures:

Based on the pictures, I think the bump is caused by the fact that between the yoke and the line of the top edge of the pockets, there is more stretching going on - your fabric has some lycra, right? The stretch is controlled at the top of this area by the yoke seam and at the bottom of the area by the pockets. I would let the seam out in the CB area (starting above the yoke seam and blending into the crotch curve) to make the jeans less tight overall, and reduce the extreme stretching that's happening in the area of the bubble now. I am thinking maybe 1/8" (seam allowance 1/2") giving you .25" more space. I think that will reduce the bump.

Good luck!

little things like that can be anonying. Ok first of all is that stretch fabric you are using?
What I see in your pictures are that the fabric stretches at that point.
I would let out some of the seams a little back and both sides.
This should help the pants from pulling at that point.
I would start above the bump about two and half inches and below the bump to the curve of the pants. Also let out some of the side seams about the same this should fix the problem. If it is still there I don't know what it could be or you need to go up one size and adjust the patten to your figure.
Here is a link I think you might like it. Its the same jeans pattern.vogue jean pattern
hope this helps .

yes, the fabric has some lycra in it. I hadn't even thought of letting anything out. Goes to show how much experience I have with stretch fabrics. I'm also sewing my first knit dress (Butterick 5328) let's see how that goes.

I'll try your suggestions and let a bit out. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
