Thanks again!  So much "engineering" for such a simple concept!

I'll photograph my paper pattern when it's drawn up with my measurements.

yes, thank you for correcting Terry. In German the term is easier (for me) O leg or X leg. It is an O leg

I think bowed legs, rather than knock knees.
Agree otherwise though with what Posaune has said
Check your measurements again, redraft and compare the patterns.
Can you post the draft? It often helps to see what you are working from. Many “modern” drafts are a bit problematic. I understand if not because of copyright.

Baste a zipper in your mock up. It doesnt have to be a real fly, just get the centre front closed as it will be in the final trouser.

Noted! I will redo the entire toile this weekend.

Okay, thanks for that. That makes a bit more sense.  :)

I'm looking at drafts with front darts. Maybe I will finally bite the bullet and make one for myself.

You have ease if you have pleats in the front. If not - the average (semi tight) front construction is done with 1/4 hip -1 cm and back 1/hip + 1. Because of the construction you add at centerfront about 0.5 cm at hip level so you can say it has 1 cm ease (whole pattern) hip level.

There's a couple of other C & T threads with valuable little tidbits:

I did go with my idea of doing the waistband interfacing in two sections, so that the elastic can run inside the interfacing at the back, and it seems to work quite well. However, I would probably use a stiffer interfacing than the linen waistcoat canvas next time.
