    Purchased and printed this pattern, but it is not seeming to go together correctly. When I line up the paired notches, lines of the pattern don’t match up. Any thoughts?

    Did anyone else have a problem with the instructions? At step 4, “you will end up with two opposite pieces”. Yes I did, but in order to sew them together at the next step, one would be right side out and one right side in. Unless there are instructions to cut the pieces out differently…this pattern doesn’t go together correctly. Am I missisng something?

    I love my fisherman pant i got in Thailand, but they are too short. i was thinking about trying to deconstruct them and use them as a pattern for some longer ones.

      You can also get some matching fabric, and make them longer.

      I could but i wear them quite often, and they are starting to show my abuse of them. SO a new pair is where it is at.

      Sorry i seem to have marked your comment as inappropriate by accident.

    Burda members should know that denim isn’t a conventional fabric for thai fisherman pants and if they are put off by the pic – not that it’s bad, just that it’s different to conventional type pants, they should google the style and find other styles – also look at member variations. I think the ones in the pic are cool but theyre not quite as good as the batiks and cottons you can see in other versions.

    am sitting at my computer wearing a pair of thai fisherman pants I got in thailand on a vacation there over this spring festival. they all have a bit of crotch issues… but if you can get beyond that, they are great comfortable pants that can serve as anything from pj bottoms, market pants, hiking pants, beach pants, or replace those sweat pants you’ve been wearing too many days in a row. They also can be worn higher to double as cute gathered high waist pants… I am a big fan of fisherman pants!
