Photo of these pants on model from Burda World of Fashion Magazine.
I think I may have waxed a little too enthusiastic about these trouser jeans in my last post. You have to remember how dreadful normal jeans appear on me (I am trying to forget Jalie 968 - wonderful on my daughter, disastrous on me) in order to appreciate how terrific I think these trousers are in a mock jeans style.
Dawn suggested that the model showing these trousers in the magazine has no backside. This is entirely possible, she is a model after all, but I think these are definitely backside minimizing pants, a factor that is extremely pleasing to me.
As you can see, I made these trousers with a more normal jeans style front pocket (thanks Jalie 968) using a cotton print for the pocket backs, waist facing and zipper guard. The adjustments I made to the pants were minimal for me - front thigh enlargement as described in my last post, and a large backside wedge addition to the back. I did take a photo of this but Blogger does not seem to want to include it today - I will put it in the review on patternreview. I also took in the back waist - about 1 and 1/2 inches, after starting with waist sz38 and hips sz42.
