Description

The comfiest pants ever!

I used the pattern from Burda 5/2012. In order to reduce bulk, I serged off one front edge that comes underneath instead of bagging out the facing edge.

I wore these on the plane from NY to Japan, and got lots of compliments while staying super comfortable:)

    They do look very good on you. I am sewing these at the moment and I am having a problem figuring out the pieces for the inseam pockets. One is large and it tells you to cut one small one ,I am lost can you help?

      The bigger pieces extend to the front edge and keep the pockets from flopping around when you are wearing the pants. Small pieces form pockets without adding too much bulk to the front (as opposed to having two large pieces). Here is how I attached the pockets (as far as I remember…)

      1. sew small pocket pieces to large pieces.
      2. serge, zigzag stitch, or bind the bottom edge of the pocket pieces.
      3. sew side seams of pants, leaving the pocket openings.
      4. attach pockets to the pocket openings.
      5. machine baste the pockets to the pants waist and pants front.

      I’m sure there are many other ways to do this… but these steps were fairly simple. Hope it helps….

      looking forward to seeing your creation on this site! :)

    Gorgeous!! I’m new to sewing and struggle with fabric choices at the moment. May I ask what fabric you used? Might give them a go, they look great!

      Thank you!! I bought this fabric from a second-hand fabric store, so I am not sure exactly what it is. some kind of blend… I think, for these pants, you want something with body, and something that wouldn’t wrinkle easily. I check this by scrunching the end of the fabric in my hand to see how wrikly it gets.
      looking forward to seeing your creation! good luck!!:)
