Hi- I am trying to make a pair of pants in Burda WOF 7/2009 number 127. Here
It is listed as a 2 dot (easy to sew), and , of course I am trying to get them done before tomorrow morning at 5 am when my daughter leaves for Morocco. That will not be happening, most likely as I cannot figure out one instruction at the tracing stage. It says "Important: trace the marked left trouser pieces and turn over so that the underside faces up." ?????????
When they show the cutting diagram, the pieces are laid one up and one down, so I have NO idea what to do. Has anyone tackled these? I would so appreciate any insight you might have.
Thanks!

It sounds like they just want you to trace it in one direction, turn it over and trace another piece with the bottom side up. If you are cutting this out in a single layer you would turn the piece over to cut the second piece. They are just telling you to trace two of the same piece and so they have to be opposite each other.

Hi Nancy, thanks so much for your reply. I have been trying to post pictures of the pattern pieces and layout from Burda (I scanned them) but they are not showing up in the body of the letter. I still don't know what to do as each of the four pattern pieces are merely extended versions of the originals. I have no spacial abilities whatsover!
If I can figure it out, (the picture posting, which I can always do just fine when I am not in high anxiety!) I will post them.
Thanks so much...

You need to wind up with 4 cut pieces for your pants---2 fronts, left and right and 2 backs, left and right. You said they are showing the left front. If your fabric is single layer, you need to cut this piece, then turn it over so the back of the pattern piece (or "underside") is facing up. If you don't, you will wind up with 2 left front pieces. If you are cutting with your fabric on a fold, then you can just cut once, 'cause that will automatically give two 2 fabric pieces for your front, a left and a right.

Update: soon I will decide when I will begin procrastinating.

Thanks so much GIButterfly- The pieces are different, though. They each have an extension added to their corresponding piece, to make a new piece (OH I wish I could get my pictures to come up!) which I would think would be taken care of by turning the corresponding pieces over during the cutout. In fact, they do lay one right and one left face down for cutting. Argggg!

Hopefully someone who has this can answer, but here is my guess base on your picture.

The small 1, 2, & 3 in your 2nd picture ("pieces") look like match points. You can see that there is an extention 2A that you have to match to piece #2 in order to get the entire flap.

You still end up with one right front, one left front, one right back, and one left back. Except 2 pieces should look like 'normal' pants and 2 should look like little sails.

Trace piece #1 once without the sail, and once with the sail. They differ at the top starting at the dart. Do the same with piece #2.

Turn piece #2 with the sail over and mark it "Left Back". Keep piece #2 that looks like a normal pant piece right side up and mark it "right back". Turn piece #1 without the sail over and mark it "Left Front". Keep piece #1 with the sale right side up and mark it "Right front". Now cut the 4 pieces with your writing facing up.

My hesitation with what I just told you is that, while it matches the words, it doesn't match the pattern layout drawing!!!! You might want to read the rest of the instructions to see which is correct: their words or their drawing. The steps should guide you. (Unless the 'pieces' picture is not an accurate reflection of what the pattern pieces actually look like on the tissue paper, in which case the words and the layout might be correct.)

This is why I hope someone else speaks up, but perhaps with what I wrote you can figure out what they want you to do. That's the basics of it, I'm just not certain which pieces to flip over.

Hi Anne-
Thanks so much--so far I have done exactly that, except when it comes to the layout, it doesn't jibe. I have not flipped the pieces over and remarked them because I would only have to flip them again to have it look like the pattern layout.
I mean, isn't Burda inscrutable enough?????
I think I will go back and remark the sides as per your very clear directions and maybe something will dawn on me!
Thanks again...
Markie

I looked at the photo of the pants again. It says something about a wrap-over front. Does this sound like it might work (and I think this goes along with what Anne said)? Are there only two pieces shown (front and back), with a "flap"? If yes, I think it means you trace and cut the right back and left front as it, then flip each piece over and just trace the pant pieces, without the flap.

Geez, no wonder you had a difficult explaining all this! And congratulations on being able to put up sketches.

Hi Again GIButterfly!
Thanks again for your thoughts. About flipping it over, because this is Burda, there is just one big page with all those other patterns drawn over each other. It looks like the LA freeway system. So, I don't know what I would flip over--oh wait, maybe the pattern I traced already...DOH! And yes, there are only two pieces, but within them are the smaller pant leg fronts and backs. Oh man! I think I am going to have to make a muslin just to see how it is done before I cut into my nice 2-way stretch jersey!
I wish Burda had a hotline!
