I'm looking for a shorts/pants pattern with a faced waistline, as seen in a lot of RTW lately. Can anyone recommend one that they've used. Thanks.

Katharine recommended this one on a board a few months back, and boy she was right. Great fit. I really need to do a review. But it has been reviewed many times. Well-liked pattern.

Burda Pant #2998

While I am at it. here is a link to many of the reviews: Link to reviews

You cna make any pant pattern into a faced pattern by eliminating the wiastband and drawing a facing from your existing pant pattern.

Locate the seam allowance and mark it off on the pants. Then trace off an area about 2-3" deep from the s.a. down. Make sure the darts on the pant are closed before tracing, though. Add your seam allowances and you have a facing! Easier than buying another pattern for the stash, especially if you have a pattern already fit in the stash!

Thank you both for your suggestions. The Burda pant is really cute and the one sited in 2005 top patterns -- Burda 2513 would work too. As I look at my RTW shorts and capri's without waistbands, it would be so simple as you suggest Lorna to make my own facing. Thank you for the tips. I really appreciate your input.

I also saw Sandra Betzina use petersham to face the waist of some trousers. That could be another option if you had some of it around...
