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…
