Error in the 1934 Men's Trousers

It came to my attention that there is a crucial flaw in the 1934 men's trouser pattern I issued in multi-size late last summer.

I have corrected the error and mocked the trousers up again to confirm that there is no longer a problem.

A customer e-mailed to let me know about the discrepancy in the length of the trouser front rise (crotch) versus that of the trouser back.  I realized I had used a file drafted from the original pattern which had this error in it instead of the corrected version of the original pattern-a grievous error on my part, indeed!

To correct your pattern, the hook of the back crotch needs to be dropped 1-1/2" from its current position while maintaining the location of the inner leg seam:

To make amends to those who are not confident in making this change to the pattern themselves, I am happy to send the corrected trouser back and the trouser front pieces to those who request them of me via e-mail.

I'm so glad it wasn't just me! I was kind of in a hurry putting these pants together and when I came up with this error I attributed it to my rush. Thanks for the heads up! I'll go fix my pattern
