Trousers BWOF 6-2008 #125
My older daughter wanted some more dressy shorts. These are modified from BWOF June 2008, trousers #125, the photo above is from the Burda website. The fabric is a smallish piece of linen/viscose mix, left over from a jacket I think, and the length of the fabric determined the length of the shorts, and the rather skimpy cuffs.
The trousers are a size 34, which my daughter's hip and waist measurement meet exactly, however, the trousers are a little too perfect in fit. I think her next sister will be wearing them next week! I will try a slightly bigger size next time I make her trousers from BWOF. It was lovely to make a pair of pants with no adjustments, I had forgotten how quick they could be.
