Linda asked me about that distance K K’ on trouser draft ( now shown in green ) I displayed in my knock knee alteration post.
This draft is taken from a book on menswear tailoring, and I have not seen this straight distance on any other draft before or after this book. It only confirms that there are as many ways to draft a pair of trousers as there are people willing to do it :)
The book says :
… find a knee level by dividing distance between seat line and hem line by two. Then mark a point 6 cm above the knee line and mark it K’. If the trouser pattern you require is not of a classic cut, then don’t mark point K’ and proceed usual..
This is it, no further information is offered on the subject, barely enough to satisfy our curiousity!
