|The next step is to determine
how many strips you will need. The easiest way to do this is to take the
measurement of the waist, subtract the combined center pieces then divide
the sum by the width of the strips.
The waist is 40 inches.
The width (top) of the center pieces is 3 inches
The width for the strips will be 3.5 inches
38-12= 28 and 28 divided by 3.5 = 8
Therefor 8 strips will be needed (4 on each side) Again remember to allow for seams
The rest of the pattern is fairly easy to cut Cut the waistband wide (I use 4 inches) and cut the length 3 inches over the waist measurement. The leg bands should be 2 inches more then the thigh measurements and 2 inches wide. The lining is the entire width of fabric that has been folded in half lengthwise. The length should equal the length of the strips. Use the loop curve from the center piece to make the loop curve on the lining
Putting the pieces together is fairly simple
