DIY: PLAID WOOL PANTS USING BURDA PATTERN 7046

Come see my new plaid pants that looks nothing like the photo on the pattern cover…

Yo whats up!

It is always a good feeling when you make a garment using leftovers fabric from an old project. In this case I had some plaid wool fabric I had used making a coat last Fall and after cleaning out the studio I ended up coming across it. I literally made these pants without looking at the directions only once or twice.

I was a little uneasy about using the my good plaid fabric for the Burda Pattern 7046, plus I wasn’t sure if I had enough. But, I had just enough fabric to pull these pants off! If you sew you know exactly how I felt at that very moment cutting out my last pattern piece lol. I styled this look pretty easy with just a crewneck tee shirt and brown loafers. Then Last, I added my coat from last year that obviously matched up perfect with the pants.
