From our very own Threads collection, you’ll find pattern 1664. It’s the perfect look to ease into spring. It includes a misses’ corset-style top that features a peplum or is cropped, a gathered knee-length skirt, wide-legged pants with side zipper, and a fitted jacket with princess seams, 3/4 sleeves, and a Peter Pan collar. This complete look is perfect to mix and match on warmer days.
To turn heads at any springtime party, try pattern 1658 by Jessica McClintock. This misses’ and miss petite special-occasion dress includes a side zipper, blouson top, flange sleeves, and slim skirt. For variety, the skirt can be made in knee, mini, or floor lengths and the top can be cut from sheer fabric.
For beginners or someone looking for a quick project, pattern 1661 is ideal. This misses’ hip-length blouse features neckline pleats with either a band or tie collar, shirttail hem, and back slit. To customize this loose-fitting, springtime shirt you can choose to make it sleeveless or with flutter or cold-shoulder sleeves. It’s perfect in light-weight or sheer fabrics for spring’s warmer days.

Where does #1664 slacks & skirt sit in terms of the waist?
In response to LindaLouise's question:
Threads hasn't tested this pattern, so I can't say for sure. However, I looked at the pattern pieces and the pattern's evelope and instructions carefully, and my best guess is that the waist in #1664 falls at the actual waist.
