How to check the balance of pant patterns.
Oftentimes, we work with existing patterns either we drafted a long time ago or somebody else made. Before you cut the fabric with the patterns it's always good to check if the patterns are good to go.
You can start with the measurement. Measure the waist if it fits your model. Hip circumference to see if the patterns have enough ease. And rise, pant length, etc.
Once you know everything is good then lastly, pant pattern balance.
If the crease line is drawn correctly. It should be at the center of the front crotch width. It should be at the center of the knee and hem both for the front & back.
If the back crotch point is lower than the front one.
And the ratio of the front crotch depth and back crotch depth.
