Thanks for your helpful review, I want to try these next week. Good thing I am 5'6 so maybe length will be just right! I love your version!

Hi Bunny. Thanks for your knowledgeable & thorough review. I am SO glad you said that, bcs I haven't made anything in about 30 years & wasn't very skilled at it then. (laughs) This was going to be my first project. Not so much anymore! I've been doing a lot of prep reading, and thought I was ready, but those 'dot' issues etc are worrying. Next time I pull out the pattern I'll make sure I've got my battle armour on. Btw, love that white shirt in your pics. Did you make it, please? Thanks!

Oh, I am so glad I caught your review! This is my first Burda pattern. A friend of mine made a kwik Sew with this same flap over waist but I had never done a Burda so decided to give this a whirl...Thanks so much for pointing out the shortcomings...I will be much more aware and now have decided to make them from a more flowy summer fabric for a muslin...Then I like your suggestions for a winter weight...which I would really like to do. Thanks so much for a very helpful review and I will tread with caution...This is why I love this site so much! BTW... I love your interpretation for this pattern, the color and your blog with your garden picture...very pretty!

Thanks -- I have this pattern and am not much taller than you, so this review will be very helpful. :) I love the look of these -- the full effect is seen in your garden photos. Cool!

Ooh, mustard linen, lovely. This is a fun look on you. I wouldn't expect it with the wide legs but the pants make you look taller than you are. Burda envelope patterns usually have really good instructions. Sorry you didn't find that to be true with this go-around. Glad you knew what you were doing. It looks like to you need to have a garden party to celebrate pants-making success.

Highly original pants in a wonderfully summery colour. I'm sorry you had trouble with the instructions. Usually I haven't found them too bad in Burda envelope patterns, but you do have to pay attention.
