In the burdastyle magazine 08/2010 we found this quite interesting pair of pants with a wrap effect (#137). Unfortunately it is only available for plus sizes from 44 up, but we needed a 42. We simply downsized the pattern, which turned out OK in the end.
The instructions asked for 2,5m of fabric, which we bought, but ended up, needing only about 1,7m. So we had quite some leftovers from the charcoal grey wool blend which ended up in a skirt
The draping in front turned out to be a bit tricky, as it didn’t fell at the waistline, like i wanted it, but a few corrections did the trick.
