For those of you with more than one pant pattern, is the crotch curve the same on all of them?
Everyone raves about the Linda pant, but I would be interested in different styles that are a bit dressier/funkier. Thanks! Sue

Hi Sue, I have several Style Arc pant patterns. It's funny you're asking about the crotch curve because just yesterday I compared the Elle pant crotch curve to the Cruising Kate one and they were very close. I'll look at all the others later today and let you know. I have to say Style Arc pants are my absolute favorite in the world--and I'm not exaggerating. My BFF loved the Elle's on me so much that she paid me to make her several pairs! Anyway, I'll get back to you on the rest of the pants crotch curves. :)
The crotch curve varies with the style of the pants, just as it should. By this I mean, a fitted pair of pants has a different crotch curve than a semi-fitted pair and different from the jeans. Each pair of pants is cut differently and fits differently, just as you would find in RTW. This said I have found most pants fit nicely with a few minor alterations for my body shape. I've ditched one or two styles after sewing a muslin, but all Style Arc's pants fit me a hundred times better than any other pattern company. The crotch curve on it's own isn't why these pants fit so well. It's the overall drafting of the entire pant that make these work. HTH
