    I made one pair of Hollywood Trousers and love them but they are a little tight in the crotch. Should I lengthen the rise ? If so, by how much ?

    You can lengthen and shorten the rise and the lengthen/shorten line on the pattern piece. Tough to say how much to add–you could either measure another pair of trousers or measure your rise and add 1″ and see how that goes. You can also sew the rise longer by scooping it more in the rise as you sew, and that would be a way to alter the pair you just finished. But in general it’s better to make adjustments to the pattern itself beforehand.
