I like the BurdyStyle Capri-042013 with the curved hem shape and the side slit. So why didn't I buy it? I would prefer a standard hem and not use the piping. Would this be too difficult?
The Curved Hem
I have drafted a pant pattern and fitted the muslin. I think it would be easy to draw the curve shape at the knee for the hem. Due to the curved style, are there any variations that I should allow for in shaping the hem allowance?
Is there a special way to draft and sew the top bit of the slit, so it looks nice on the inside, where it blends into the leg seam?

+ A full fold back facing (you can still have your curved edges) that goes as high as the slit
+ A separate full facing (this gives you the opportunity to pop a contrast in there
+ You can do a regular fold back hem about 1.5" deep (still keeping your curved edge), and your slit seam allowance at .75" to do a clean finished double turn. Perhaps this one is the easiest to draft and sew... given you are not fond of the piping work. (see photo)
