    Totally pissed off with this pattern! I’m an experienced sewer but didn’t expect that you wouldn’t just lay out and cut as most patterns. You would think that if there was something different to normal then it would be highlighted in the instructions AND there would be a diagram of how to lay out the pattern. My first experience with online patterns, probably my last as I now don’t have enough fabric to cut out 2 more pieces so I either go and buy another metre ( a 1 hour drive) or I make them with the wrong side of the fabric for 2 pieces which would look ridiculous! Pretty poor Burda!

    This is a mediocre pattern with TERRIBLE instructions. I wasted $28 worth of batik fabric because they do not mention that the pieces have to be cut out individually instead of with the fabric folded, like every other pattern on the planet!!!!! Also, if you have any kind of a buttock, which let’s face it, we all do, these just don’t work right. I’m beyond disappointed. However, If Burda does something to make this up to me, I could be made happy again.

    Thank you, Kristi! Burda, could you please, and I can’t believe I even have to ask for this, add this critically important information to your “instructions”? Add a pattern layout diagram and mention this!!

    these are fantastic. It is nice to see pants that are not a western style. These pants will inspire me to think about pants in a more interesting and creative way. Thank you burda.

    I really have to ask, what is the actual measurement on these? It says one size, but I’ve seen these one size fits all fully made for sale on etsy before and the measurements listed would not work right on a plus sized person with say 52 inch hips.

    These are too short :( I also think this pattern is kind of ridiculous BUT that’s a style choice. I’m making them for a friend that requested them. Also, note… if you are accustomed to sewing and making pants you need to know that you do NOT cut out the pieces on the reverse. As in don’t fold the fabric and then cut them OR don’t cut with the pattern piece laying one way and then flip. You cut out the pieces in the same direction… as strange as it seams. The front/back piece ends up being one front piece and one back piece. You don’t do a mirrored cut or you’ll waist fabric!

      Thank you, Kristi. I only wish I had read your comment BEFORE I cut them out and started making them. I’m certainly glad I decided to do a test run with some cheap muslin first. That’s why they make seam rippers, I guess! :-)

      Thank you so much for sharing, Kristi. Burda, could you please add this vital, critical information to your pattern “instructions”?

    Beware, the novice rating on the pants is not at all 100% true, it will take some sewing knowledge to actually work out small kinks in the pattern. They are also not traditional Thai Fisherman pants, but a rework that is made as you see in the picture.

    Shorter and with less waist and leg than normally usable, I would have to say that it is possible, as users below have edited the pattern to work and fit comfortably, but this requires some editing, something a novice might not be capable of.
