I bought a Nic Culotte. Here is what bothers me! As you can clearly see in the photos, the stripes are not running straight down , they turn to the Center. Me, being a graphics designer and printer, I constantly try to straighten them up, with no success. If there is a pattern in the fabric, and seeing that those pants are expensive, I would have expected better. BTW , otherwise I like your garments and have many in my wardrobe.
Thanks for such honest words. I will try to explain why this happens.
The lines are cut straight, but being a wide leg pant with an elasticated waist, the fabric needs to gather to fit on the waist and organically the lines will join together in the center.
We are super cautious with patterns in the fabrics, working with Liberty fabrics we need to and this was no exception.
Hope this understanding eases your discomfort.
