Do you have measurements and basic instructions for some pants I saw a vague picture of today, which seemed to have 2 rectangular "tubes" for the legs, 2 square patches one for the center front and one for the center back, and then an odd shaped gusset like a long diamond, but with the two short corners cut off? It looked to me as if it would use fabric efficiently, such as you commented on for your tunic, but still be sufficiently "fitted" such as the shirt I made, so as to be practical for our current lifestyles.

Thanks Melissa! I don't have instagram, but the key words "zero waste" did get some hits on things I hadn't seen.

She's on Instagram as @lizhaywood3754, and posts readers' finished projects, if you want to get an idea of what to expect.
