I am about to make a pair of pants and I want to put in a tummy control panel. The outer fabric has stretch and I will use a non stretch cotton fabric to make the panel. I have looked at a pair of jeans I have with a tummy control panel and they have used a cotton fabric but have sewn across the diagnoals so that the bias does not stretch. I intend to do this too. The jeans panels go from the side to the zip.
However, the pants I am making have a back invisible zip so the panel in the front will go right across. Do I cut this panel slightly smaller than the stretch fabric or the same size. I am guessing the same size but would appreciate your input.
