I have made a pair of pants.  A pair of pinstripe pants, that is.  

The fabric is a stretchy wool.  I bought it a while ago, however, so I could not tell you what the fabric exactly is.  

They're made from a Burda pattern, #8698.  I altered them only slightly to resemble a pair of anthropologie pants that are no longer advertised on the website.  They really don't look very similar at all... but I love them anyway.  And you probably will never know the difference.   Grin

The front, which, in this picture, looks like the back.  Ha ha... ha

The long view.  Mind the wet spot; I was doing dishes before taking photos.  

Looking back at the project, I wish that I'd used a pattern that was a trouser pant instead of bootcut, as these ones are, because the pinstripe looks a bit silly as bootcut.  Oh well... live and learn.

I <3 pinstripes!

I love the waistband on those - it's so clean and trim looking.

those are great, it looks like they fit you really well too.
i've heard burda makes the best pants patterns, would you reccomend them for a pants-beginner?

Burda does make rather nice pants patterns.  I'm very tall, so I always have to lengthen them (easy) but I also have to take them in a great deal in the back seam because of my round bottom.  Haha.  So... if you have issues like that, you might need another sewer around to help pin the correct fit.  Not too hard to solve.  Um... Burda, however, does not give the best instructions.  You have to know a bit about sewing to sometimes understand what they want.  I don't know how beginner you are, but if you have an experienced sewer to consult, you could make their pants no sweat.  That's prolly a longer answer than you were expecting/wanting.  Ha.

thanks for the info! i'm pretty much a real beginner, i like to think i know alot about fit and how a garment is constructed, but i havent actually done much. I also dont really know anyone around here who sews, so maybe i'll wait until i find someone who does to try anything more complicated. thanks again!
