I fell in love with StyleArc's Linda pants, done in a stretch knit. Unfortunately StyleArc puts only one size in each pattern envelope. They provide a measurement chart, and my hips are right on for one size but my waist is the next size up. Am I right in thinking I should buy for my hip size, and that it would be easier to adjust the waist?

You can email Chloe, but I have the same issue on the size chart. I bought my Linda pattern according to hip size and with the waist being elastic, didn't even bother to enlarge the waist.
