    Hi Beth,
    Would love to know where these pants hit your waist? Right at the waist or below it? I have this pattern but read another review on PR and the poster stated she had problems with the seams lining up – any problems with yours?



  2. Hi Polly,

    Yes, I read that review. I think that reviewer was having a bad day. One of the commenters suggested that she was not including the pocket and I agree. The pattern was fine. I did think (briefly) that the pocket didn’t match the pocket facing, but I realized that I had cut the pocket for the skirt and the facing for the pants–they aren’t the same.

    The waistband comes up to the natural waist. Unlike traditional pants that come up to the waist and then the (straight) waistband sits above it, these employ a contour waistband that stops just at the waist. I’m kinda “meh” about that, but that’s probably my age speaking.

    I like the pants.



  3. I just love your design opportunity. My daughter and I use that term also. I just love your shirt.

    Love your waistband secret!
