I love your version! I had decided to pass this pattern by, but now I am not so sure.

Thanks for a very detailed & helpful review. I was looking at the downloadable pattern yesterday; now I'll buy it for sure! I like your choice of denim; you did a great job sewing. Oh, and I really like your description for your sewing time!

I love these pants. I'm very glad to hear they graded up successfully; the most interesting Burda pants always seem to stop at 42

I ended up darting the sides where the waistband already had a seam. hot wash and now they fit great!

I'm so glad to see a review of these! I'd love to make a pair of these for spring and it sounds like we are similar sizes. I'm glad to see your success with grading up! Thanks for the review- these look great!

Those are super cute. I want some just like them. I'd try shrinking them too or pair them with some taller contrasting boots.

The trousers came out wonderfully. And good for you, up-sizing and having everything come out so nicely. I do get a little tired of people picking on Burda's instructions, though. The section you quoted actually says, "Stitch inside leg seams, turning hem allowances down to do so." Actually, quite clear, I think.

I too was very interested in this pattern and bought this issue partly because of it... very nice to hear so soon about how it's working for you!

Very cool design and I'm glad you reviewed these. I'd love to see how they look on a non-model when you finish a non-muslin version!

I was very interested in these exact pants when I got my issue... and we are basically the same size it sounds like... I would love to see how they fit in some photos. This is such a helpful review... thanks!

Working on that, I actually meant to keep this private until I got pictures, but I clicked on post too quickly :)
