    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.

    I have version 3 of the digital pattern of Cargo Pants. I am also having the same problem as someone from three years ago.
    The bottom of the back pants does not fit with the top of the bottom back panel. I have checked orientation and the pattern.
    I do not see any errata about it.
    I can cut the sides down, but wonder why there is no fix for this.

    I took a quick glance at this and it appears to be a grading issue. My apologies that we didn’t catch it earlier. As soon as I have time I’ll address it and we’ll issue an errata, ok?

    As Liesl mentioned, there was indeed a minor grading issue on Piece 3. It was most pronounced (about 1/4″) on the smallest sizes.

    We have updated the digital pattern to fix the issue and have issued an errata notice which is now available here:


    On the errata page, we have given links where you can download a revised Piece 3 to print at home. Or you can use your original download link for the digital pattern to obtain a copy of the updated version with the corrected Piece 3.

    So sorry for the inconvenience here!
