Lengthen or Shorten Crotch Depth and Leg Length
If your muslin’s crotch point is sitting uncomfortably high or hanging too low, you need a crotch depth adjustment. The jogger’s are designed to hit at your ankle bone, but you can adjust the leg length to suit your personal preference.
Full or Thin Thigh
If you notice tight wrinkles across the thighs, you need a full thigh adjustment. If you notice excess fabric hanging vertically at the thighs, you need a thin thigh adjustment.
Full or Flat Seat
If you notice the back waist of your pants pulling down or sense general tightness across your butt, you need a full rear adjustment. If you notice excess fabric at the under or at the fullest part of your butt, you need a flat rear adjustment.
