Pattern Review: BurdaStyle 6544 PantsUpdate your pants wardrobe with these easy-to-sew, wide-legged options.
BurdaStyle 6544 pattern will update your pants wardrobe with these easy-to-sew, wide-legged options. The cropped view has a paper-bag-waistline look with belt loops, a wrapped cord belt, and front and back pleats. The full-length view has a pleated front with a snap closure and double back-waist darts. Both versions include in-seam side pockets and a cut-on, 2-inch-wide waist facing. The finished bottom edge of the facing is at waistline level. For a custom fit, our tester recommends trying on the pant to determine the snap placement rather than relying on the pattern’s snap placement marking. The instructions are straightforward, and all seams match. Choose lightweight, drapey wovens in rayon, cotton, silk, or blends.
(Sized 8–18 for hips 34–41.75 in.)
Sewing Tip: Edgestitch the front pleats to maintain the crease.
