Pattern Review: Burda 7535 Pants

Style Tip: Pair these billowy pants with a fitted top to balance the look.

Burda 7535

An unusual fly front makes these Bohemian-style pants a standout. The angled fly forms a diagonal zipperless opening for an eye-catching detail. The waistline is defined with either a wide, shaped band or by a narrow yoke with long bias ties. The full thigh area tapers below the knee and makes for stylish comfort. The pant leg also features a large, horizontal dart just below the knee. There are quite a few pattern pieces to both waistbands and many look similar, especially after removing them from the paper pattern. It is recommended to either keep the paper pattern intact until the last minute or carefully mark each piece when removing the pattern. Lightweight fabrics with some drape, such as cotton gauze or even seersucker, are appropriate.

(Sized 6–20 for hips 32.5–44 in.)

Style Tip: Pair these billowy pants with a fitted top to balance the look.
