Pants fitting question
horizontal wrinkles on the back of my thighs

I recently tried out both a Burda pant pattern and a Vogue pant pattern, but ended up with the same fitting issue. I'm assuming I need to adjust the pattern but I don't know where to start.

Why do I get horizontal wrinkles on the back of my thighs? They are located from the knee all the way up to the crotch (so it's many horizontal wrinkles).

Is there a pattern company that might work better for me?

Thanks in advance

If you can post some photos (back, side, and front, too), we will be able to give some advice, I'm sure.

Not a fitting expert by any means, but it seems then when there are horizontal wrinkles, the fix is often to fold out the extra fabric until the wrinkles disappear.

I'm sure some of the experts will come along to offer more helpful advice.

From what others have said, the nasty message came from Fitting Woes, NOT Misc Hot Topics or the Civility thread.

Could you possibly require the knock knee adjustment? Debbie Cook has submitted several posts and pictures, just can't find them right now.

There are a couple of reasons for this depending on your body. A photo would really be needed to determine the exact reason.
