Well, this turned up completely different than the original pattern, mostly cause of the fabric. It was some kind of polyester lycra, very thin, but with nice shine. I believe this fabric has more elastic than this pattern predicts. Than, I had to make size 42 thanks to my wide hips, although I am size 38 in waist, height etc. Hence high waist and long legging’s legs.
At the end I am satisfied, but I think I am going to narrow a bit some parts. This was my quickest sewing ever! And I am definitely going to make some real pants out of this pattern, cause I like it a lot (it was love at 1st sight)!
