    I’m making the cargo pants in 6-12 month size. When I match up the bottom of the back pants with the top of the bottom back panel (step 5 in the pattern), I’m finding that the bottom back panel is about 1/2 inch wider than the back pants piece. At first I thought I must have traced one of the pattern pieces incorrectly, but that was not the case. I’m thinking I will just trim off the excess and sort of smooth out the curve. Am I missing something?

    This may sound daft (but I’ve done it), are you sure you haven’t rotated the bottom pants piece by 90degrees…..

    I have this same issue. It’s definitely not rotated, based on the location of the notches. (Assuming the 3 notches on the bottom panel are intended to land on the top of the panel and the two sides.) I can post a photo if that’s helpful.
