Burda describes them as stove pipe trousers with knee accent. For stretch fabric.
I made the 40 based on hip and waist measurements.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Kind of. I made some changes to mine.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Pretty typical Burda. With some experience you can get through it.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the interesting seaming and that they are knit pants with a fly front.
I do not like the straight cut waistband. This never works for me and I have finally learned my lesson and will substitute a contoured waistband for future projects.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I left off the back pockets on purpose and the horizontal knee seam on accident.
Also, since the straight cut waist band caused excessive gaping in the back I took about two inches out of the back waist tapering down through the back seam.
Took about 3 inches of length off as I am only 5'3" tall.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Probably won't sew again as one pair is enough. I would recommend these with the cautionary note that the straight cut waist band is a bad idea in my opinion. Also, I did not add seam allowances to the waistband at first and it was not long enough. I just re-cut new waistbands with added allowance. Not sure if it was my error or Burdas, just be aware and double check that waistband length :o)
Fun and interesting pants to sew that are very comfortable to wear.
