The fit at the knee is complex. While the front is convex, to accommodate the kneecap, the back is concave to fit hollow. The outside seam is slightly longer than the inside. There are tabs at the bottom of the button stand and buttonhole flap, so they can be pulled straight under the knee band.
Once the knee band is pressed up, whip the knee band lining to the leg lining. The free ends of the band can be back stitched vertically to the button stand tab and front. All that is left now is buttons and button holes.
