Thanks for the elastic tip - is the 4" rule used with all types of elastic ? How about with the LH Brussels skirt? I wish I had been able to watch the Sew Perfect series - I think I have read that it is no longer running - what a shame that I learned about it too late!

Deepika - are you long waisted? I tried this pattern and the crotch was too low.

not sure what you mean Glo. The crotch is a teeny bit low for me but its comfortable so I like it that way. Its very easy to alter the crotch, if you have the Sewing pants that fit book by singer it will show you how. Otherwise I can xerox a few pages which I found helpful and mail them to you.

I've already fixed the problem by taking about 1-1/2" off the waist edge and resetting the elastic. I didn't make a casing the second time around but used a method similar to yours described above, excepting I stitched through the elastic edge. There's no worry about the elastic rolling this way. Debbie - 4" works with most elastics. Try pinning it around your waist and leaving it there for a while to see if it feels the way you want it.

I just made a second pair in rayon using the shortened crotch alteration from my first pair in knit. Now the crotch rides too high. I will add the length back in by adding a separate waistband to replace the fabric I removed. I'd caution anyone making this pattern to fit it separately for knits vs. wovens.

I just wanted to add that I made this pattern again in cotton interlock and it fit the same way for me. I wanted the pants to be low waisted so I chopped off 3 inches from the top and it worked great! I have used this pattern 4 times now.

This is my favorite pattern that I have ever sewed with. I have made so many pants from this pattern that I have lost count . It fit me right out of the envelope with no adjustments.

Mini, this is one pattern which I absolutely am in love with! and now that I have altered it to be low waisted I love it even more (if that's possible ;-) ). My next version will be in khakhi linen with pocket a la Stretch and Sew.

For a beginner, it's hard to sift through all the patterns to see what will work well and is simple to sew. Thanks for all the tips!

So now you got DH feeding your addiction. Smooth move! He's has great taste. That's a beautiful fabric.

He he! Rennie, he went to malaysia without me with his family so I guess he 'missed me' and brought loads of gfits for me. Never got so many gifts before in our 3 years of marriage. I did not like the fabric at first glance but the finished pants look great. I wore them the other day and people were really noticing them. Don't know if its because they look good or bad ;-)

Both versions look fabulous on you. Wow! This pattern is one I need to try. Is it still in print?

Phyllis after this successful attempt, I am encouraged to try merging east with west in my future garments. They do look interesting.

I've been playing with a Kwik Sew legging one-seam pattern, modifying it for different purposes. Are these one-seams straight down from the hip? Or do they taper at all? If they are straight (and they appear to be) are they ever too baggy in the ankles relative to the hips? I guess it depends on the ratio of the two measurements on your body...

Do you think this would be a good first pattern? I'm putting together a "New Sewer's Sewing Kit" as a Christmas present, and thought of including this pattern ....

Carolyn, Burda patterns are available in Joann stores. Let me know if you can't find it, this is one of my favorite patterns. I'd be happy to buy it for you and mail it.

Thanks for the Sandra Betzina technique and for the KS link. I printed it and this review and will follow your suggestions, as I embark on my first pair of pants. Do you think wool jersey would be a good fabric choice for this pattern?

Penelope, I've made this pattern in all sorts of wovens and many knits, but not wool jersey but only because I dont find wool jersey comfortable (its scratchy to me). I see no reason why you cant make it in that.

Great pants. The grean fabric from Malaysia is beautiful and makes a wonderful pair of pants. I like the border at the hem.
