This pattern (use SOWNBROOKLYN20 for 20% of all patterns in that store) came together effortlessly…until I reached the waistband. I always have waistband issues primarily because I never used the suggested seam allowance. There were some slapdash fixes applied because I didn’t have enough of this fabric to re-cut the waistband pieces. It’s a stretch wool I’ve failed at everything I’ve tried to make with it previously. These were cut from scarps.
