Burda Style Sewing Pattern Pants

Bob woven pants Had to redraft

The quality of the paper was excellent.
I don't know about the smaller sizes, but the larger ones were not like the picture. They ballooned out like crazy from the top and didn't seem drafted for the proportion changes that come with larger size. I could have put on my wig and nose, hopped on a unicycle and had a day under the big top.
Lucky I did a test fit with calico.

I had to do a tiny full derrière adjustment as the back crotch length was just a little shy.

I took huge amounts out of the top and top leg to bring them back to the gentle curve in the picture that seems like it should curve out most in the mid and lower leg area. I also had to redraft the bottom leg and ankle somewhat - it was way too wide.

It ended up being good, but the amount of work required to get them right was prodigious. I could have just drafted them from scratch to be honest, with the amount of work. I'm reluctant to try other larger sizes patterns from here now, not for me!
