The extra zipper length can be snipped off once the waistband is sewn in. Sandra does say that which way you face the overlap is a personal choice but after I put the zipper on my husband's trousers in the same way as my own he told me men have the flap on the opposite side same as buttons on a shirt.
I have used them and find pasting them together a real chore and the finished pattern is then very bulky and awkward to store. I was also very surprised after purchase to find that you are only allowed a limited amount of times to print them.
By the time you work out printing costs and time to paste together, it really is not worth the effort.
If you do use them be very careful to set your printer correctly. Select NONE in the printer scaling box
or the pattern will be scaled wrongly. Easy to miss. The instructions also print out very small and cannot be saved to your PC. Or at least i did not find a way to do this.
I remember doing something very similar when I first started sewing 40 years ago when a sleeve refused to hang nicely. I was ashamed of my laziness. I am afraid I still think it looks like a sewing error.
Thanks you. I would also love to know how to hang trousers properly. Do I hang from the waist or the hems? Do I leave zips open or closed? Or are they best folded over a trouser bar?
