I am making a pair of pants for my friend and this is my first pair of pants. He says that he buys size 36" waist pants, but when I have done all the measurements, his waist is size 40. I know he buys size 36 as I have gone shopping with him! I have Burda pattern 7046.
My question is this, how do I cut the pattern? Do I follow the industry standard 36? Or do I cut the pattern for a 40" waist? How does the Burda pattern compare when making pants? He also has a soccer butt and how do I make the pants look good and fit right?
Are there any tips you could pass on to me as well, to make my fist pair of pants worthy of being worn, without looking ill fitting? Thanks for any help!
