Description

I wanted to challenge myself and try making a pair of trousers for summer, from a linen material. After browsing Burda website for a while, I decided to pick this pleated culottes pattern, and make it a little longer.

I have to say upfront, I don’t recommend using the pattern instructions included. These are one of the most poorly written pattern instructions, I’ve ever read. After reading half way through, the instructions get so confusing, that I just was not able to continue following them although I think of myself as quite an intelligent person. So I finished the sewing just based my previous experience with other patterns, and also I googled a little bit for youtube videos on how to attach the zipper, etc.

I also decided not to make any pockets on my trousers, or the flaps, as I don’t like them.

I’ve used linen chambray, quite nice fabric for summer wardrobe.

    I favorited this pattern but now that you’re saying that it is not so obvious to sew I might not do it. But it is a really nice pattern and it looks very good on you. Amazing job!
