I have a rectangle figure.  No waist and no hips, just a tree trunk.  I have serious problems with pants with sewn in hips.  A lot of pants I get from GAP or BR have them, they look like wings on the side of my drives me crazy.  I finally decided to take matters into my own hands with my recent purchase of GAP maternity pants.  These were on a great deal - after tax and free shipping (LUXE coupon code) I paid $20!  I ripped the seams out from each side, and then pulled the fabric out a little bit and stitched straight down - to minimize the hip allowance.  The picture below shows the original and excess materials on each side.  The pink thread is a basting stitch that I followed with black thread.  It's inside out so you can see.  Now it fits like a glove!  I wish I thought of this before.
