I updated my capri pattern so that I would have less looseness on the hips, but darn, they’re a bit too tight in the bum!
On this version, instead of making a foldover band, I did a diagonally overlapping band in the front and did not make the band as thick. This version will fit more comfortably under skirts.

patience and my seam ripper (I sewed the band on backwards at first, oops!)
