Pattern Review: Burda Style 7195 Wide-Leg Pants

Threads magazine - 162 - Aug./Sept. 2012

Style Tip: Ideal for tall figures, this stylish look is best paired with a fitted top and heels.

This review was originally featured in Threads #162 (August/September 2012).

Burda 7195

Resort-worthy, these loose-fitting, wide-leg trousers and shorts are perfect for relaxing days. The first view’s waistband is encircled with three elastic rows. The other has a more tailored waist with deep box pleats in front, elastic in the back, side-seam pockets, and either a tie sash anchored at the side seams or an asymmetrical pleated peplum-style waistband that drapes over the front. For a dressier look, our tester recommends replacing the tie sash with a wide ribbon, such as velvet. For a casual look, wear the shorts rolled up at the hem. Ideal fabrics include lightweight cotton, crepe, jersey or any thin and slinky fabric. It is shown at left in a polyester/rayon blend, woven to look like linen.

(Sized 6-18 for hips 32.5-41.75 in.)

Style Tip: Ideal for tall figures, this stylish look is best paired with a fitted top and heels.
