"A hint of the 70's is in the air.....the season's trendiest garment - pyjama-style pants. The pants are cut slender at the top to avoid adding extra fullness to the hips, then flare fully to the hem."
The pants are high-waisted (the upper edge sits 4 cm above the waist at centre back and 2.5 cm above the waist at the centre front) have an underlap/overlap with button detail at the front, an invisble zip at CB seam and in-seam pockets.
Burda sizes 36-44.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were fairly good. The in-seam pockets were the most difficult part to follow and I am sure there is probably an easier way to do them than the stated instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
- the interesting underlap/overlap detail.
- the CB invisible zip
- the pockets that extend to the CF seam and waistband seam so they sit nicely.
- the instructions for inserting the in-seam pockets.
Polyester picked up at The Fabric Store. A lovely flowy fabric that suits this pattern well.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I took a lot of length off the pants. Otherwise no changes to the pattern.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I have sewn the shorts version (121) since making these pants, so I would have to answer yes to both questions.
If you can handle the high waist of these pants, I would recommend this pattern to you.
