Pleated Plaid Trousers

I was curious about this pattern #106 from BurdaStyle 12/2017. I bought the fabric at stoffogstil.no and my plan was to use it as lining for a jacket, but then I realized it would be nice for these pants as well. When sewing with plaid fabric it’s all about cutting the pieces very carefully so the squares matches exactly.
The Waistcoat is an earlier project, and so is the Wool Top

    These trousers look great! I was hesitating as this pattern is for “petite” but they seems ok? I have a piece of blackwatch plaid fabric, tempting…

    This looks superb on you Ellen. Plaids match perfectly and the fit is amazing. Just the right color for Chinese New Year too.
