This pattern was actually made for extra-tall women with looooong legs, and I am a shorty with short legs, but I just had to try it. It is from the Burda Style magazine 2/2010 and I love the extra style-lines and in general pants that have room around the hips and get narrow towards the ankles. These turned out super comfortable and in the last picture I am combining them with a bunch of stuff I made myself: a tie-front blouse from the 50’s, a blazer and backpack from CUT, and – last but not at all least – the shoes that I made myself.
