I normally fit a size 10 pant but had to make these in a 14. The sizing is quite different, but the 14 fits well. I made the pattern twice so far, firstly with pinwhale corduroy, the second with stretch corduroy - avoid using stretch corduroy, it didn't make up well. Next time I will try with some cotton / polycotton for work pants. I like the pattern and it's ease to make. I use a coloured thread to mark the centre seam and a different coloured thread for other markings... rather than notches, which are nonexistent on this pattern. Thanks for your review!

Yes, thanks for this review. I agree about Burda not putting match points in; it is a pet peeve of mine. But they do have a better crotch curve.

Good review. Thanks for the pointers on how you adjusted the fit for the "mature" figure. You did what I suspected might work, now I know it does.
