The Look + Pattern Review
Pattern Description: Extra-full pants with elastic casing in the waist. The charm of it is the slanting pleat piece that tilts down from the waist.
Pattern Sizing: I cut size 6
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions for these pants are actually pretty easy to follow and Burda always has pretty god illustrations for those who may need them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love EVERYTHING, especially the folded down waist with the pleats and the high waist and wide legs.
Fabric Used: Rayon Challis
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None! I didn’t have to make a single change to the pattern and it fit as a size 6 right out of the envelope which never happens, and because it is such a lose fitting pant you just need to make sure the waist measurement is correct.
Would you sew it again? I already ordered fabric to make them in 3 other colors, LOL
Would you recommend it to others? Yes, Yes & Yes the pattern itself is not hard at all but I can see the waist and fold/pleat portion confusing for some but it’s not that hard…really.
