Hot Pink Trousers

These trousers have been on my to-make list for ages. I bought the fabric close to a year ago. After my epic jacket project, I wanted a quick project. This fit the bill: less than 48 hours start to finish. The pattern is from Burdastyle 4/07. I’ve made it before, so it was all traced off and everything! I thought the fabric was linen, but it really feels mushy like rayon. Also, it changes color under the iron like rayon. Perhaps it’s a rayon/linen blend? Anyway, I like this skinny fit. It kind of maybe in a certain light makes my butt look like it’s not completely flat. Maybe. Not like I’m brave enough to post a rear view photo. You’ll just have to use your imagination.

Front view. This pattern is interesting because the waistband does not go all the way around to the center front.

    Inspite of their pinkness these look great! Great job fitting them too – I find that pants are the hardest for a lot of people to fit just right.

      LOL the pinkness is the best thing about them! Do not fear the pink. Embrace it.

    I love the colour, I agree that pants are difficult to fit. Great job!

    Wow, talk about hidden treasure! That waist treatment is really nice but I have absolutely NO MEMORY of these pants! Off to look up the line drawings on Burda France.

    The color of your pants is one of my favorites. No, seriously! I used to keep a little notebook with scraps of sewn fabrics and I was surprised to see how often hot pink/fuschia and brown cropped up in my sewing.

    I love the recently finished jacket – a real work of art – as well as these brightly colored pants.
