|Pattern Description: |
Slender basic pant in 2 lengths with side zip, waist facings, and ankle slit.
36-48 European 10-22 US I've decided that the key to making a great fitting pair of pants is to go by the finished measurements, if given. I made the size 38 with a finished hip measurement of 39" and my hip measurement is 38.5". Going by their sizing chart I should have made size 40 and I'm so glad I did not.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They are Burda sparse but adequate. And I should have used them, maybe I wouldn't have forgotten to do the ankle slits!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I'm in love! A simple, basic, close-fitting pant that fit me straight out of the envelope without one alteration! What's not to love? But, for everyone elses benefit...well drafted, includes seam allowances, darts at waist for a good fit, love the slits even though I forgot them, slim fit and not the usual oversized bag legs offered by the Big 4.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
In my euphoric state of bliss over these pants fitting so wonderfully, I serged the outer seams and didn't remember to make the ankle slits. I made the longer version and they are not long, as you can see. I made no intentional changes.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes. This is only the first pair of MANY more to come.
Love this pattern...can't say enough about how happy I am to finally find the ONE. My next pair will be made to go with my August Archer which is next in queue. Get this pattern!
