Cropped trousers from Burdastyle 6/2011, #123. This is the 4th version of these trousers, all successful. It is a petite pattern in the book, so needed to be adjusted for a tall person here. The fabric is a stretch cotton sateen I got from the Sewing Show in Birmingham about 4-5 years ago. It’s been waiting for the right pair of trousers all along. Daughter No2 loves these & she got great compliments from her friends at school. I have a feeling this will not be the last you see of this pattern…

    Love the pants. So happy to see others like to make pants out of pretty prints. I have been doing it whenever I can find the print for years, as I have long legs but my upper body is a bit overblown. So the print takes attention where I want and away from what I would rather hide. ;-)
