This is one of Burda's starter pants patterns, meant to be very easy, for someone who is a new sewer. The pants were very easy to make and I had no problems (other than with interfacing, but that's my fault for not labeling iron on vs. sew on) I highly recommend these pants. They're comfy, they fit great, and they're so easy. I used a basic twill from Joann's that was around $2-3 a yard, add in the zipper, I had a button, and the pattern, these pants cost less than $20 to make. And I will be using this pattern again and again (it's SO easy to customize! the fit is what is important)  Hope you like! If you have any questions, feel free. Oh and if you're making white pants, don't be like me and wear purple undies when modeling! lol

Those look very good-- did you find the pattern easy to read? I'd heard Burda could be difficult to figure out.

Very cute! How many pieces were there to the pants, not including interface pieces?

There was a spot about the waistband that was difficult, but I looked up the terms in a sewing book I have and figured it out. I found them to be better than other companies though.
Let me think-there were the pocket pieces (4), front legs (2), back legs (2), 2 types of tabs (4 altogether), waistband pieces (4 plus interfacing)and the underlap, which I didn't use. So, not a whole lot of pieces!

Another question... How many yards of material did it take? I want to make these this weekend, but I'm budgeting.

Umm, I think it was 2.5. I always buy extra in case I mess up, and I bought 3, so it's less than 3.

It's under a flap, just like in a regular pair of jeans, you know, the fly? It wasn't too difficult and looks way better than leaving it exposed.
