What a lot of (long) comments on my Burda post. Thank you, it was so nice to read all your opinions about it. I keep hoping Burda will publish something fashionable and interesting again soon. I've been working on a pair of trousers, inspired by a rtw linen pair I bought this summer and was happy with . It was a bit lower style than I usually wear/make and the fit was good. But it shrunk a bit when washing and I couldn't really copy it. So I browsed my Burda (!) magazines and found a similar style in the May 2006 issue.
I made a muslin and to my great surprise it almost fitted as it was. I only had to let out the side seams at hip height a bit extra. I don’t have pictures of muslin or trousers yet, but I am very happy wiith how it looks in general and especially on the inside. I like a good inside finish.
The fabric is a very beautiful, thin wool and I interfaced till the knee. It will be my first “fall” project.
Like I did before I changed the pattern for the waistband so that the center seam is transferred to the inside.
The zipper has a fly shield.
Hope to show finished pictures later this week.
