Draw alternatives to the traditional fly.

Not all pants have a front fly opening, but always think about how the person is getting in and out of the pants. If there’s no front fly, then the fabric must be really stretchy (think leggings or maternity pants) or must have an elastic waistband.

Sailor pants are another example of pants without a traditional fly front; they have a front panel that buttons on the sides. Dressier pants may have a hidden side zipper (also called an invisible zipper) that keeps the front of the pants smooth.
