Okay, they’re Royal Blue, but they are brighter than the navy blue I usually wear. I like that these pants don’t have a waistband.
Even though the pattern looks really easy, it took days and days and days to get the fitting half-way right. It is a lot harder to have a fitted look on a solid color (versus a print) that will show every shadow, pull and wrinkle.
I hope this is the last BurdaStyle pattern I buy, seam allowance not included! The pants ended up much shorter than I’d hoped because during a fit of fitting, I shortened the hem to the seam line, forgetting to include seam allowance. And I know it should be easy to trace a seam allowance, but when re-fitting over and over, one starts to lose their mind.
Variation: BurdaStyle has the zipper in the front, but I couldn’t figure out how to put the flap in, so I put the zipper on the left side and prefer that much more!
