I've just been looking at the latest Burda Plus for Autumn, see here.

I like a lot of these patterns although it's off season right now for Australia. This magazine is almost impossible to buy here , so I might try to order from Europe so I have it ready for our next winter. Autumn clothes are ideal for Sydney, Australia winters.

I made up a prototype of the pants, but they didn't work at all. Something about the adjustments I made caused the legs to twist badly. As a result the lower half of the pantleg twists and hangs oddly. They're alright for pj's. I might draft a PMB version and try that. I do like the pant.

Its a great mag isn't it. There are loads of styles I like from it.
So far I've only used the panels from the chiffon skirt in another project but there are loads of things I like there.

I've traced out the faux wrap #411 but haven't cut it out or sewn it up yet. I think there are some great pieces for the new season.

Oh shoot, I was getting ready to trace the pants! Do have any idea what went wrong and if they were ok to begin with. Please let us know how the PMB version works out.

My hope is to sew to the very end. They'll find my head slumped over my precious Kenmore 19606 and have to pry the seam ripper from my cold, dead hands.

I love that wrap top and think I can wear it because the wrap hangs straight down instead of getting gathered up into the side. Maybe, I'll trace that while I wait to see how Mastdenman's pant's turn out, lol.

I think the pant leg hung too much to the outside. When I compared it to my Wild Ginger pants, there is about 3/8 inch on the outside of the pantleg vs. the inside. I'm thinking the leg needs to be shifted inwards a little. The pants also don't have nearly enough front to back depth for me. If you are reasonably flat from front to back, they might work for you.

Thank you so much for the info on the Burda pants. I may give them a try anyway and see what I can do. I really like the pockets and zipper.

I was thinking about making the pretty shawl-collard dress as a shirt. It's cut on the bias, but I noticed that the lining was cut on the straight grain. Think it would be OK to cut the shirt on the straight grain?
