Pleats and Panels skirt, so I also extended the opening below the waistband. And this time it has pockets! I think this is one of two skirts I own with pockets. I usually forget to add them to the skirts I make.
You need to measure your waist ("A", 34"), 4 inches below your waist (B, 38.25)
Now to make a pattern:
Start by drawing a straight line for B across your paper,
|(We are looking at it from the side now)|
|(There are seam allowances added on the top, bottom and right sides. I just erased the inner lines)|
You just need a few more pieces! Cut a rectangular piece that is B-C plus 1" tall by 3" wide and one that is B-C plus 1" tall by 1.5" wide ( I cut both 2 inches wide and regretted it.) These are your placket pieces; if you use a zipper below the waistband instead of snaps you won't need them.
