I've made a couple pair of jeans that fit perfectly in the waist and hips, but I find too much bulk in the back of the pattern, and it's about 4" of ease.

What I think I should do:

Cut the pattern horizontally at the crotch seam line. Take the lower half of the pattern and remove the ease by cutting vertically down the center and 2" on either side. Like removing a center section of cake and pushing the ends back together. heh.

Then where do I add back the top half that I've removed from my pattern to match the crotch seam to my adjustments?

Or am I tackling this adjustment from the wrong direction? This is the first pattern adjustment I've had to make.

A picture would really help in determining the best way to help by pinpointing the area you need reduced. Is it possible you need a flat seat adjustment?
