Pattern Review: Burda 7551 Skirt and Pants

Threads magazine - 155 – June/July 2011 Issue
Article Image

Style Tip: Balance the beautiful fullness and drape of these pants or skirt with a slim and simple top.

This review was originally featured in Threads #155 (June/July 2011).

Burda 7551

Loose-fitting and comfortable, this skirt and capri-length pants pattern features a yoke, gathered center front, and deep side pockets that extend out and wrap around to the back. In addition, both feature intriguing hemlines. The skirt has a bubble hem, and the pant hem is asymmetrical. The pattern comes together well, all notches match up, and the instructions are complete. The recommended fabrics are linen and cotton, but our tester also suggests softer fabrics, such as crepe or charmeuse.

(Sized 6-18 for hips 32.5-42 in.)

Style Tip: Balance the beautiful fullness and drape of these pants or skirt with a slim and simple top.

-Tested by Tomasa Jimenez, Lyndhurst, New Jersey
