Bella Pants. Such a hard work…
According to Burdastyle scale, my butt is size 38 and my waist is size 34. Sooo… It was pretty tough to adjust this pant!
Acutally size 38 was too big, and the yoke was waaaayyy too big. So I dropped the interfacing and facing parts of the yoke, I had to adjust it a million times, and I finally reduced the width of the legs of almost half! Also, the waist was too high, it looked weird, so I took out about 5cm and the last button.
And I topstitched it with turquoise, it was pretty hard to keep it straight but I did ok.
Apart from that… It’s a great pant and I love wearing it !
