I did sew up Burda 7863
Unfortunately I second guessed myself on the sizing. Even though I measure a size 44 in Burda magazine for my lower half, I have found that I have to sew up size 42 to get a good fit. Well....this was my first time using a pattern envelope Burda patten and I followed the sizing chart. Sign....they were WAY too big.
Since I didn't have anymore stretch pant weight fabric, I switched to Burda 7447.
I had a chocolate brown cotten sateen in stash that I picked up cheap in one of Fabric Mart's great sales. The pattern had welt back pockets but I'm afraid that I could not figure out Burda's instructions and made a big mess of them. So I borrowed the pocket piece from my Jalie jeans to hide the disaster and make these pants wearable.
