Classic red pants.
These are your classic slim-fit pants. They are classic in fit and classic in sewing.
I made mine because I was looking at the red fabric and thinking “what to sew, what to sew”. Then the April issue of BurdaStyle come out and I had an “Ah-ha” moment. I did not have red cropped pants so I gave it a go.
Material: 1 meter (width 150 cm) of fabric.
Modifications: I used pattern about 2 sizes smaller to my true Burda size.
Important note on the length: model in the magazine has cool bands at the bottom but because I am short (152 cm) + I had only 1 meter of fabric I did not make the bands. When I finished the pants (which were supposed to be 7/8 WITH the bands) I ended up with the length that were 7/8 WITHOUT the bands. So I chopped about 10-15 cm from the bottom.
Lessons from my experience:
1 bands are cool, should’ve made them.
2 working on the classic pants is kind of… unexciting. Mine did turned out nicely and the quality was very good but the next time I need pants, I’ll get them from the store (and save some time for a cool prints or unusual models).
p.s. classic pants for 6 dollars is still pretty nice 🙂
