I have this pants pattern that calls for facings. It has 2 darts at the front, 2 darts at the back (pretty standard, I would imagine). I’d like to make the pants with a waistband, rather than have facings. How can I adapt the pattern? Do I chop off the top by the height of the waistband (thereby shortening the darts)? Do I shorten it somewhere above the crotch line (to keep the darts as they are)? Those are the two options I see, are there others? I tried to search on the web, and had no luck, so if anybody knows anything, I’ll be very grateful!
Many thanks in advance!
