Description

Brigitte Bardot 7/8 trousers from Burda 06/2011.
Burda size 12 fits my bottom half very comfortably. The stretch satin makes them even more comfortable. I purchased black petersham ribbon for the waistband but decided upon reflection that the slight stretch is too much comfort to give up by stabilising it with the petersham.
I love the two darts on the back-it makes them fit.

      thank you! The stretch fabric makes them really comfortable and I wear them to work quite a lot (I’ve got them on today!)

      thank you-can’t wait to wear them now but we’ve actually got sunny weather (at last) so I’ll have to wait!

      thanks-they look ginormous on the hanger but fit very comfortably when they are on.

      thanks-my husband is renovating a lambretta-if he ever gets it finished I’ll be able to make something to match that too!

    Good job! This pattern is in my “to make” pile for the daughters. I hope mine turn out as well as yours.

      Ooh thanks. They were very straight forward to make…except for the front fly. I’ve always done side zips and I had to watch youtube a few times to understand what I was supposed to be doing!
