Description

I’ve made my first pair of pants using the December 2011 Burdastyle pattern #111 view C. It was pretty easy but I had to take it in an inch on each outer trouser leg seam because it made me look thick in the thighs. Yuck! Anyways I learned a lot from this project and I can’t wait to make another one.

Material Notes

1 and 5/8 in yard of weaver’s cloth, one 7 in zipper, thread, trousers hook

    Looks great! P.S. according to my experience almost every Burda pattern makes thick on hips, legs … ect., but that’s why it learns a lot of lessons as well :D

      Thank you! After I initially sewed it I thought I did something wrong but I’m glad somebody else has the same experience. You’re right…lessons learned!
