Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for an experienced sewist I am in the process of making this wide leg pant for a size 18 woman. If you are new to sewing, this is what you need to know before beginning. The pattern is not already prepared for you. Look for the link that includes the word "description." Three pages will print. Page one has the photo, supplies, and directions. Read the directions before beginning. I am an expert and even I read directions before beginning. The pattern calls for cotton fabric. If you change to a different fabric content, the pant will drape differently. You have been warned. The second page has the leg pattern. Think about school math where you used graphing paper. Didn't use graphing paper? So sad. Then instead make your own graphing paper from tissue paper, newspaper, freezer paper, or typing paper taped together. Measure your waist. Make sure there is enough width on the pant and the waistband plus seam allowances. Once you cut the fabric, you can always take away fabric. You cannot easily add. You have been warned. Page three is the waist band. The waist band is already ready to cut. You can see the one inch grids on the waistband. The word "Fold" means to put that edge on the part where the fabric is already folded from the manufacturer. You must cut four waistband. Because I am tall with a wide waist - I bought extra fabric. Measure your waist. Divide your waist measurement in half. Divide that number in half again. That Half Again is your magic waist number for this project. Remember that when you sew - you sew a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Add that 1/2 inch seam allowance to your magic number. Now you have the Cutting Magoc Number. Next, lay your entire sheet of printed paper on top of your lovely DIY grid paper. Cut the printed waistband pattern in half on the "5" gridline. Spread the two halves until you have added enough grids to match your Cutting Magic Number. I used to just add to the ends but with the Plus Size sewing, I like to keep the shape of the curve. Tape the printed pattern to your lovely DIY paper to match your Cutting Magic Number. I use clear tape so I can see the lines. I use a lot of tape. Now cut out the waist pattern paper. You now have a waistband designed for your body. I use a similar process for the crotch part of the legs to be sure that I have enough crotch length. The sewing part is easy. For the crotch, I use a hard, flat, ruler that I place against my tummy. From tummy to beginning curve of the crotch is the Crotch Front Length Magic Number. I do the same for the back. I am tall so I must alter most patterns. These pants have ease built into them. On the top of the pant leg is where the waistband will be sewn. You must add it takeaway enough inches to match your finished waistband. To keep the shape of the design, I cut the pattern lengthwise top to bottom then spread the two parts to add enough inches for my waist. I have smaller legs so my pants leg pattern opens at the top in a V shape then gradually tapers to the original pattern leg shape in the crotch. Its easier to do than write. I tape the pieces of the leg together, then I cut a new pattern that has been altered to fit my body shape. These steps are not difficult to do. I put on relaxing music or TV show and enjoy the process. These patterns are free for a reason - they fit a standard body type and size ideal that most women don't fit. In 2016 - the average woman is a size 16.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So we need to draft this pattern? I see the patterns pages for the pieces however, do we need to draft these in order to "create" the pattern pieces? Confused but its what seems to be the case here!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Novice The complete pattern is under the "description tab". Click on that tab and scroll down. The pants legs and the waistband are both there. My only question is, I printed it out but how do I use a photocopy? I don't know how to measure and cut my fabric with the copies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great pattern Great Pattern, the waistband is on the second page! Why people rated this pattern so low is because they didn't print the pattern and directions, so please enjoy this great FREE pattern.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No pattern??? Where is the pattern? I see the picture of the pant legs but shouldn't it be split up into several pages to print and piece together - or are we required to create our own? That would mean the pattern is "NOT provided" and there is no waist band pattern.
