Begin with an origin point (O), located at the top left of your sheet of , some distance in from the left edge. Draw a horizontal line through this point and stretching out both sides of the origin point, somewhat more than about half the hip width - this is the waist line. In these instructions, I present both the front and back panels on the same sheet of paper - in practice, it will probably be easier to do these on separate sheets of paper, as finding paper wide enough to accommodate both is difficult, and working with such wide paper is also awkward. You will need quite long sheets of paper to accommodate the full length of the leg - I often scotch tape two sheets of newsprint together to ensure I get the length I need.
