Remember wide-legged pants with the back crotch seam just jammed right up in there? Well I do, and I have a hankering for some.

Is there a commercial pattern for those, or would I have to draft it myself?

Thanks in advance!

You might want to look at Burda pants patterns. Although I find their crotch curve the most anatomically correct, it is also true that European patterns do favor patterns with a closer cut that shows more cleavage than American patterns.

To get that effect, you will want to follow the measurement charts in the pattern exactly, as well as adding a couple of non-standard measurements: One is called the 'stride' and is described here. To get this, put a length of elastic around your body where you want the waist to be, and then measure between your legs from front to back, holding the tape measure as close to your body as you want the pants to be (probably pretty snugly for the effect you want). This length should agree with the total crotch seam length of your pattern pieces, plus the width of the waistband, unless you want a higher-waisted effect.

Second, you need to know your 'rise.' This is basically the vertical distance from your waist or waistband (for low-rise pants) to the bones you sit on, and it's an important measurement if you're seeking to get a wedgie (or avoid one). On the right of this youtube page, there are a whole bunch of videos indicating various ways to get the rise and other measurements.
