Burda 02-2010 #102 Pants

I love these pants and this fabric. I’m planning on buying more of this Fabric.com Bi-Stretch Gabardine in black. I have it in this heathered grey and I love it. These are simple side-zip pants from Burda 02/2010 #102. Here’s the line drawing from Burda.

Here’s more of my beautiful view. The snow went away and will hopefully not return for another three or four weeks! I’m wearing knee-high suede boots and the pants seem to get stuck on them a bit at the hem. I usually wear these boots with skirts, not pants.

The classic hands-in-pockets pose. I really like these pants. I’m planning on making a few more pairs in black, navy, and maybe dark purple. I love this gabardine from Fabric.com.

And are these not the coolest knee-high suede boots? They’re purple! How could you not love them?02_2010

 

Here’s the inside finish on the invisible zipper. I always use the Kathleen Fasanella tips in doing the zippers. It makes a very nice looking inside! There is a link on my sidebar on the right. Hmmm, just kidding, I guess. I’ll add one.

These are really great! I'll have to take a second look at that design.

Very nice pants indeed - I love the boot leg, and hey, I love the boots too.

I was wondering about that fabric?! Great to hear a good review on it. The pants look awesome. They fit you perfectly and the purple knee high boots are super cool. I love them!

Good job, you look great!
I love this pattern too, I've made at least 6 pairs for all the girls in my family. The fit is amazing, so I know I'll be making more of them! I have been very frustrated with Burda lately, but I guess every once in a while they do throw in at least 1 amazing pattern.

These pants are great and fit so well. I was on a quest for a nice bootcut pant pattern and didn't remember this one. I'll have to try it.

Love the boots too!

Love the boots. They are absolutely gorgeous! I like this pattern too though they don't look quite the same in my size (44) - I have made up multiple times including denim with red topstitching and lots of stripe trousering.

Oh god..I so want those boots! If only my fat leg fitted into them. :)

Great job on the pants too.

Great fit! Do you like the hand of the fabric? I am leery of polyester.
