I never made any garment before (actually, I did make a skirt once, I should put it up some day) so I decided to try my hand on a pair of pants.
They are based on a Burda pattern I bought for this project, and I sure learned a lot in the project. One thing I’ve learned is that the zipper is friggin’ hard. I couldn’t wrap my head around the (brief) instructions that came with the pattern and ended up just improvising.
So, in the end I have pants that have a zipper that is a bit special. But I kind of like it, as the pattern was way too classic for me anyway :)
Next time though, things should look better :)
Note: The third picture is before the pants were fully completed. But I added it because jsanga wanted a picture of the entire thing ;)
Based on Burda pattern 7841. The fabric is some ‘wool-like’ fake thing, but I don’t remember what exactly.
