Deep Blue Burda Trousers

Deep Blue Burda Trousers

It only took me a year to get sewing with this vibrant Deep Blue Kona Cotton- but it was worth the wait! I LOVE these paper-bag waist trousers!

This is my wearable muslin version of Burda Style Jersey Trousers 113- 05/22 in a size 40 worn with another one of my black and white stripe tees. Plus they look nice and patriotic.

I’ll probably wear them this Fourth of July weekend. My husband’s giant flag made for an extra nice pic!

Plus check out my Vine! It was cut all the way back to about two inches after the house was tented for termites in March and it’s already back and blooming like crazy. It’s only been 3 months!

Burda patterns tend to fit me very easily, and this pattern is no exception. The only change I’ll make next time around is to shorten the rise a bit as its a bit deep.

But I love the silhouette and style!

I’m looking forward to making these up in a drapey fabric. The cotton works just fine but a lightweight fabric would be better suited to this design.

I’ve realized I tend to make alot of muslin versions of patterns, but rarely follow through with a second version, so I’m on the lookout for fabric to make another set.

I’m wearing them here with a modified Jalie Tee I’ve made quite a few times. This one has slowly morphed with my sloper to the tee you see here.
I’ve also since hemmed it- finally!
I have a ton of similar tees but there a bit boring for a blog post so I tend to include them with other makes. But I do love a nice tee.
They’re the workhorses of my wardrobe. This black and white stripe and a grayish blue stripe tee are in constant rotation in my closet.

Black and White narrow stripe knit, OOS- but my go to for high quality knits!


I’ve been on a roll with posting to the blog weekly! I really dislike social media and at this point only want to do it when I’m paid to (i.e. for work!)

It’s such a hassle and I just don’t care enough, especially since it disappears from view so quickly.

I sometimes feel like a dinosaur, still blogging after all this time, but I really love having a detailed record of what I’ve created.

I hope you all enjoy what I share and write!

I’m slowly working on getting my home studio in shape. I’ve found the perfect drafting style desks at Ikea and am totally redoing my bedroom to incorporate the birch and pale green look!

They can be raised to different heights which is so awesome.

I’m planning on getting 2 (plus the matching chair) that I’ll set up back to back. I can sew in the lower position and raise them up and add a cutting mat to use them when I’m drafting.

I have a really small space so these are going to be perfect!

I won’t have a room of my own until my son goes off to the military/ or college! So I need to make it work now.

Back soon with so many more makes! I have weeks worth of content to share and my fabric stash is getting a bit out of hand! Happy Sewing!
