Comfortable print trousers :)

Added Sep 1, 2013

Nedre Vats, Norway






I have used pattern #108 Burda 02/2013 for these trousers. Original I bought this fabric to make a skirt many years ago, but all of a sudden I found out that this will be nice for a pair of trousers. First I decided not to use elastic band at the bottom, but at the end this was nicer. I’m wearing the trousers now and I really love them :)

      Thanks a lot! :)
      It’s a business trip – not moving… I’m working in my husbands company and we have delivered the first AutoStore automated warehouse system in Asia, so we will attend the opening. You can have a look;
      I don’t know how much time we have for pleasure, but it’s always nice to look around :) Maybe we can meet? My email is; Cheers!

      I see! Be great if we could meet, but I totally understand if you’re too busy. A warehouse full of robots sound very sci-fi – how cool! I’ll drop you an email tomorrow as today is a little hectic, but just in case I forget, my email is!

    Einfach schön! Im Journal steht bei dieser Hose “tiefer Sitz”, habe sie deshalb ignoriert. Hat sie einen guten Sitz?

    It was absolutely right to make pants of the fabric, they look very nice, suit you and I don’t know what else to say to express how much I like them:-))) I only can admire and envy how well you look in your Super pants!

    I love these as well ellen, i’m glad you omitted the elastic bottom as it reminded me of jogging trousers I’m now seeing this pattern potential so thank you for that. The trousers are just lovely on you and i do adore a fun fabric I’m going to trace this pattern out for myself xx

      Thank you very much Mary! My description is probable not so good.. I did use the elastic at the bottom, and I think this was a good choice :) It’s a little bit loose and comfortable.
