Nichola Pants

Added Apr 28, 2008

Melbourne, Austr...






This was my first attempt at a Burda Style pattern. The first of many I hope!

I added some piping around the waistband and belt carriers. If I had thought of it I would have added some around the back pocket as well.

Material Notes

Stretchy blue fabric with white pinstripes (sorry don’t have details – it was on sale!)

White piping

Wooden buttons






Rathdowne Remnants, Brunswick VIC

    Oh wow I only put this up last night and there’s so many comments – how nice! Thanks guys.

    Piping is so easy! To position it correctly I just sewed it on the right side of one of the fabrics that would make up the seam. I used a zipperfoot and just machine basted it in, using my fingers to roll the cord out a little bit so I could get in nice and close.

    Then I put the other fabric on to sew the seam properly and I used my nails to press down and see where the piping was so I could sew nice and close to it neatly, again with the zipper foot.

    I think I am going to become a piping addict.

    These are so great! I love piping. I love Rathdown Remnants too- I used to live in the same street they are in now but six months before they opened up there, I moved! :o(

    Love your pants! Was it hard doing the piping? I have never done this before but would like to give it a go one day! The extra detail really makes the pants look wonderful. Great job!!

    Really cool fabric for these pants, I like your idea with the piping! it makes them look nautical and fresh.
