I really liked the looks of these pants and I hoped that they would turn out to be a great basic. My experience sewing Burda pants has always been excellent, I cut a 40, I played with the ease at the waist a bit and I was done. Recently my waist has expanded (welcome to the 50s!) so I cut a 42 and when I tried them on they looked awful, wrinkles all the way down my back plus a baggy seat. To try to save them I took them in at the darts, center back and sides...they still look bad. So I took out my reliable Fast Fit by Sandra Betzina and shortened the back curve at the crotch. So it has all helped but those wrinkles at the legs are still there, even if they are less pronounced.
Obligatory back view
Next time I'm cutting the 40 and adjusting the waist, why didn't I just do that to start with?
The pants have a waist facing and side invisible zipper.
The waist at the front is lower than the front
