Added Dec 14, 2013
the pattern is a super easy one from May 2013 edition of Burda Style mag, pattern no. 117. like all my other sewing projects, i already bought this fabric which has cute bird print before i even knew what i wanted to make of it, so when this pattern came and i decided to make them from this fabric, it turned out that the fabric was like 20 cm too short.
so i had to make the inside pockets from another fabric. i used a similar fabric to the bird fabric i was using for the pants, which is polyester satin. for the drawstring, i used remnants of a cotton jersey fabric i bought years ago to make a t-shirt for my husband. i could’ve used the bird fabric for it, but i felt like it needed a different colour.
i like the result, though i should’ve probably loosen up the stitching a bit. since they’re too tight, if you see the pics more carefully, you can see that the sides of the pants are a bit crunched upwards.
total of about 1,4 m of polyester satin,
about 20 cm of cotton jersey for the drawstring,
about 10 cm of interfacing fabric.
