Bella Pants. Such a hard work…
According to Burdastyle scale, my butt is size 38 and my waist is size 34. Sooo… It was pretty tough to adjust this pant!
Acutally size 38 was too big, and the yoke was waaaayyy too big. So I dropped the interfacing and facing parts of the yoke, I had to adjust it a million times, and I finally reduced the width of the legs of almost half! Also, the waist was too high, it looked weird, so I took out about 5cm and the last button.
And I topstitched it with turquoise, it was pretty hard to keep it straight but I did ok.

Apart from that… It’s a great pant and I love wearing it !

Material Notes

Navy heavy cotton, buttons, thread.




Garment Type
Business, Classic

    These are so beautiful! I’ve been thinking of making these for a while, but was too lazy to try, as I’m all different sizes, too (size 34 waist, size 40 hip). However, the fact that yours turned out so well has inspired me to take a stab at making them! Any extra advice on the best way to make the waist fit?

      Thank you! For the first one, I modified the colours with the program on my computer, it’s called iPhoto. I think what I did is add a lot of “white” … But I’m not sure ^^

    It makes your bum look great coz it shows off a sort of hourglass thing going on. Love the top stitching.
