Description

I followed the High Waist Trousers 02/2013 #119 pattern’s instructions to complete my project for my latest jacket seen in my previous projects here http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/wool-biker-jacket-with-quilt-sleeve-panels

The pattern is super easy to follow and very very accurate! Such a delight to work with. I dropped the front pockets but added my design, a cross quilted panel around the waist. I hope you like it too :)

I used size 36 and added 1.5cm seam-allownces as indicated plus 4cm on hemlines.

Sorry about the images but I have no photographer to work with :S

More pics to come! :)
Love

    Hi! I love your trousers. I am just about to download this pattern – I think. I would like to do the pocket as is written in the pattern, but the directions are not good enough for me even though I consider myself an advanced sewist. I guess I will have to look for a tutorial in another resource for welt pockets such as these. What weight of interfacing did you use on the wrong side of the waistband facing? I can tell you used a fabric with stretch. I was planning to use a woven non-stretch brocade similar to what is pictured. By the way, I am brand new to BurdaStyle and this whole site has be obsessed!

      Hi, thank you :)

      I used the same fabric for facing but didn’t use any interfacing inside, there’s no need as the fabric was very thick and had a good body so interfacing was not necessary. Dropped the pockets they would look way to much on the pants. This fabric makes me look quite bottom heavy so I would suggest to use something lighter. You will def need some stretch…I might try a brocade version have some lovely fabric left to see how they sit. Easy to follow pattern though and very accurate unlike many other patterns I used. Good luck! :)

    Hello Trudy, I really like your trousers, and they look great on you! I spotted your soft biker jacket when you posted it and thought it was a nice Larissa version. I also spotted this pattern in the magazine, as I like the high waist, but couldn’t really imagine it. And now you’ve put the two together, wow!

      Thank you so much! The reason why I chose high-waist was simply because the jacket is almost like a crop jacket, very short and impractical for me as I’m cold all the time :) Only later when I found out you can actually shorten-lengthen it in your pattern…Maybe next year I’ll give it a another go as I made at least five coats and jackets this winter.

      I love this pattern, can’t stress enough how easy is to make them if you follow the instructions! :)

    Wow Trudy!! You’ve taken these far beyond expectations….I absolutely love the quilted panel detail. The only question i have (as you’ve proved they can look fabulous!) is…. Do they feel odd or uncomfortable? I’m so used to wearing my pants/jeans at or below my hip I fear I may wind up tugging down at them constantly. Do you find it an issue?

    I’m like you… I’ve so many gaments completed and that I wear, but no one to take (good) photos. It is frustrating!!

    Once again …thanks for posting these. I’m so impressed and really inspired. They look great and fit you perfectly. Congratulations on your great work. :-).

      First, let me tell you you made my day with your comment! :) Thank you so much!

      To answer you question, the pants are extremely comfortable and I meant to state that in the description. Really no need for tugging, I’m however a big fan of high-waist but I haven’t wore any for a long time now! These are made from a very heavy wool-blend fabric with some stretch which makes them super comfy but I look quite heavy in them so I would advice, if you want to make something similar they will deff add and extra inch to your hips and bottom :P I’m not to bothered about it I like a full and round bottom :)

      I would strongly suggest to chose a fabric which has some stretch in it. I measured myself before I picked size 36 and I have to say it was highly accurate. Don’t forget the seam-allowances as indicated. You will find that the waist has interfacing…I think that’s what you call it anyway…and you can use different color or print for that to dress them up even more as you can see the waist has these little “ears” that you can turn down and what not :)

      Or you can add stripes which are again very trendy

      The options are endless :)

      I hope I’ve answered your question but if you need any help just let me know I’m happy to help!
