Re: [TheCostumersManifesto] Pattern for Wide Leg Pants for Russian Dancer in The Nutcracker
>> need some information on the Wide Leg Pants that the Male RussianDancer wears. Does anyone know where I might purchase a pattern for them
or can I redesign the Arabian Pants pattern that I have in order to use
that pattern. Any help as far as where to purchase a pattern or redesign
what I have would be appreciated.
This won't be the more modern version the the pattern, but you can look
at the evolution of the shapes from the mid-east up into the Balkans and
Caucasus regions. Max Tilke did a number of flat drawings that include
the seam lines. Here's a good page to start:

pattern gives you the crotch depth and you can see how side lines widen
Not the whole answer, but a starting point for modifying what you've got.
