Description

been in a mood for pants lately!
this is my test or muslin version for pattern no 106, from burda magazine (12/2013)
i plan to make a pair in wool or jacquard
but before i cut into a fancy fabric
i wanted to give it a try in floral cotton, that i got from a remnant box
and paid 1 euro for it
..
i skipped the front fly zipper and added invisible zip at the center back seam
but i forgot to apply those changes to the waistband,
so my nicely interfaced and sewed waistband had to go to the garbage
and since i run out of fabric
i used bias tape to finish the waistline
(that, of course has made my pockets a bit smaller
but i can still use them, so everything’s fine)
..
i’m actually surprised how comfy these pants are!
i’ve been wearing skirts and dresses almost exclusevly for years now
and one of the main reasons is that i find them way more comfy than pants
but this pair of pants is actually way more comfortable than bunch of the skirts i have
..

    Odlično izgledaju! Jesu li stvarno super udobne? Ja sam isto odavno odustala od nošenja pantalona, ali ove tvoje me baš inspirišu da im dam još jednu šansu :) Inače imam isti ovakav materijal! Moj opaki plan je da od njega napravim haljinu dugih rukava, i samo sam blaaago zabrinuta kako će izgledati kada se cela pokrijem ovakvim printom :D

      hvala.. da, bas su udobne, jeste da je materijal blago rastegljiv, ali ne verujem da je samo zbog toga (rastegljive si i helanke, pa su i one manje udobne od ovih pantalona).. videcu dal ce biti udobne i kad ih napravim od neceg nerastegljivog.. hehe, mislim da ce biti savrsena haljinica od ovog materijala (super je kako svi dobijemo razlicite ideje sa istim materijalima, mogle bismo neki ‘challenge’ da organizujemo hehe)

      These fit you so well. I have been using the botton section of burdas jumpsuit (made 3) to make summer trousers. They fit me perfectly and look good. I am going to check this pattern out as i love what you have done with it x
