Does anyone have this pattern handy? I am trying in vain to understand step 25 (it is very similar to 20-22 here: (

Why does this waistband seem so tiny? I can follow the photos for 23 and 24 (though 23 seems so small, like 8" long! – how is this going to lay right?) but 25 (or 22 in the linked example) has me stumped.

25: Baste bands right sides together with side waistband edges (seam number 11) .

Turn waistband out on fold line.

Stitch side edges together, catching in bands (25a). Turn waistband, baste inside edge at joining seam and stitch close to edge.

I gotta quit for the night. I can’t understand. Thank you!!!!
