Your pants look soooooo spiffy! As soona s I stumbled on this pattern I thought 'I wonder if someone has made these as pants' and yes someone has, and done a very good job of it too!

What a great idea to make a skirt out of this pattern! I hope you post a photo when you get around to it. Thanks for your detailed review--very helpful, particularly as I'm about to give this same pattern a shot myself!

I'm very keen on this Kwik Sew pattern - great idea to lengthen them - they look fab!!!

Wow! Those pants look great on you! Did you put the zipper in the back? I'm worried about that, as my zippers are never quite perfect, and I'm not keen on drawing attention to my backside with a wonky zipper!

Love them! I bought (way overpriced) navy anchor buttons at Fishmans to make the KS shorts.

I love the sailor style front and the wide legs look great on you. Nice melding of patterns.

Teri, you look MAAAAAAARVERLOUS! I like this eyecatchingly stylish ensemble that you put together. You remind me of a young and gorgeous Kirsten Dunst!

Thanks for all the kind comments! Buttonfaith, the crotch curve on the Burda fits me a bit more snug than the medium Kwik-Sew. I guess I could have tweaked KS but didn't see the need when I already had a crotch that worked for to speak ;-)

These are great pants and look really nice on you! I like your idea of lengthening the shorts into different was the crotch curve on the Burda pattern?

You are very clever to have put these two patterns together that way. The pants look fantastic on you.

I have this pattern, but between the cold fronts and being unable to choose which view to make first, I have been procrastinating on them. TY for the head's-up on the pockets!

Those look really nice on you. I hadn't noticed this Kwik Sew pattern before. I really love the front detail. Thank you for explaining how you combined the 2 patterns.
