I had been looking forward to making these trousers from Burdastyle magazine 11/2013 #120.
I'd traced the pattern and made it shorter as it was a tall pattern. I'd hoped to make these up in a neutral fabric that I had, but there wasn't quite enough, so I decided that I'd be better making a muslin anyway and cut it out of some light weight furnishing fabric. I'm so glad I didn't make these without the muslin as the fit was awful.
1. Despie lopping about 4 inches off the length the legs were far too long and too tight!
For a minute I actually thought about altering the pattern, but so many changes would be needed I decided that I might be better off drafting my own. Although, I might try a different burda pattern. This one from the current issue. (The trouser part of the jumpsuit)
or this one from 11/2011.
Has anyone made either and can suggest any solutions?
