Does anyone know how to draft the contoured waistband on Lutterloh pants? I just recently got the system and am trying to draft a pant pattern - MMIX #36 in my book. I am confused as to how to separate the back pattern from the waistband at the dart area. A lot of the pants patterns are drafted this way, and do not have a separate straight waistband. Thanks!

Draft the pattern according to instructions than take tissue paper and trace the pants onto one piece and a separate piece for the curved waist band. The line where they meet is the separation point than add seam allowance. I tried a test pattern from the magazine and added 2" to the side seams. Than did a quick try on muslin and they were too small. Need to go back to the drawing board.

Thanks for the reply Sew2006! I measured the bottom of the curved waistband, and it is 1 cm larger than the waistline (these were the two edges that were drafted together and separated). Is that correct? Would the bottom of the waistband be eased onto the waistline of the pant?

If I'm not mistaken, it should fit onto the area where you separated it. The 1cm change in the circumference is due to where the bottom of the contour sits on your hip.

Edited to add: You might also want to sign up for a class on the Lutterloh New Zealand website. Andre and especially Sonja are so incredibly helpful! And you don't have to be working on one of their designated patterns, during the class.
