Description

I was so inspired by MadeinAmandine’s sailor pants from Burdastyle Magazine’s 4/2012 issue, pattern #125. Her pants came out so nice I had to make a pair of my own. One of the winning points with this pattern is that it is in petite sizes. The waist and hips were a perfect fit cut in size 17. Plus this was sooo easy to make. Extra points! Anyways, I did have to take in the inner leg seams because they were too wide. However, that was my only major concern and MadeinAmandine also pointed it out she had to do that as well.

I have been so used to wearing skinny jeans and pants but this wide legged version is so comfortable I can’t wait to wear it out.

    Ok I’m confused you said you used a size 17? Is that European sizing because you don’t look like a 17 and I need a pattern size 6 does this come in a 6?

      Yes, that’s the European sizing that Burdastyle had it in. I don’t know if that’s the exact equivalent of a U.S. size 6 but I usually rely on the body measurements that Burdastyle offers for each pattern size. Typically, I am used to cutting a size 36 for Burdastyle. Sounds huge right?

      Thank you! I think these could be altered to fit tall sizes. As it was I had to lop off a number of inches even after cutting out the petite size. Thanks again!
