Burda Plus Fall/Winter 2008 #404 Slim Pant

Greatly enhanced photos of a dark brown slim pant.

I left the straight of grain basting in to make sure that I didn’t twist a leg in the makeup. I have not been pleased with the pants where I’ve, through sloppy cutting or neglect, have let the leg twist. These came out nice and straight this time. I recommend this treatment if you like a pressed leg.

The fabric is very stretchy (2 ways) wool/lycra blend that would be considered a tropical or all seasons weight.

I wish I had a photographer to correct all my modeling mistakes!!! I’m slightly bent over in the front view, sorry!

The pattern is very easy to make up. The fabric I used this time is almost too lightweight for pants. This pattern, as neat and well drafted as it is, needs a challenge and I will next do it in the grey glenplaid you saw in the last post’s vest. It’s a non-stretch to so I’ll cut with wider seam allowances and try out the cuffed version. We”ll see…


About Mary Beth

I am fascinated by changing patterns and colored threads. I sew garments and am teaching myself to machine knit. Since selling the building that housed my workrooms, The Stitchery, I'm searching for a place to set up the knitting machines again. There must be room here somewhere!
