Resort wear #2 Burda 05-2012-122 Trousers

The description is "A hint of the 70's is in the air.....the season's trendiest garment - pyjama-style pants.  The pants are cut slender at the top to avoid adding extra fullness to the hips, then flare fully to the hem."

The pants have a really interesting front with a angled front overlap/underlap which is held with a button.  The button holds the layers together and thankfully the underlap is stitched shut inside.  There is a invisible zip at the centre back to get in and out of these trousers.


They are very high waisted.  In fact, the pattern says the upper edge sits 4 cm above the waist at centre back and 2.5 cm above the waist at the centre front....and it is so...




and the back...

Most of the time I will probably wear these with a top over all the lovely features at the waist...



If you can handle the high waist-line I would recommend this pattern to you.  I could not find a review of this pattern so I thought I would add my two cents in over at pattern review.  The review is here for those interested.... Ciao!

  1. These are so lovely and look great on you Sue! Thanks for the info about the high waist, as having a shorter waist these probably will not be the best style for moi, but they look oh-so-good on you :)

  3. Pants are lovely and they look great on you especially with the top tucked in. BTW are you coming back to simple savings, I haven't seen any of your posts on there, I miss them.

  4. They look really great and what a nice fit you have there. It's a shame the detail will be covered but they do look good even covered.

  9. They look fabulous on you. It is a shame the cute detail is hidden if you wear your top out.

  13. I've wondered about this pattern before today. It looks great on you and your choice of fabric is perfect. I'm not sure the style would work for my hips, but I do love a highwaisted pant and it works with your top both in and out.
