The only alteration I made other than the smaller seam allowance is that I lengthened them by 4 inches at the knee. I am not incredibly tall, but I love to wear high heels, and I knew from making them before that they needed to be lengthened for heels.
Now, readers, I need your honest opinions. What do you think of the fit of the rear end and legs of these pants? In the pattern picture, they look more fitted, but I know that is just a drawing. They "feel" like they fit well in the rear, but do the legs look a little loose to you right under the rear? I could just say I was going for the slouchy look, I suppose. I used 1/8" inch sliver eyelets. It was so hard to find these eyelets. I could not find them anywhere locally, so I ordered them from etsy. I used a shoestring for the tie in the back.
I used buttons from my local fabric store. I thought they were perfect jeans buttons. In these pics on my monitor, the denim looks charcoal gray, but they are a medium blue denim.
I hope all of you had a Happy Thanksgiving. My husband cooked our entire Thanksgiving dinner--ham, dressing, dumplings, beans, and corn. All I did was make tea and slice the cranberry sauce.
I am so excited over these pants that I am almost through making another pair from a Burda pattern. I just need to put some fasteners on the front and hem them. I will show them to you soon.
