We recently took a look at the Burda 6573 pants pattern in an IG live session. We spoke about the pattern in great detail and provided some insight into working with the pattern. I want to provide a summary of that discussion, along with some more details, and answer some questions we received.
I will like to start by saying that this is a great pants pattern. If you like wearing full or high waist pants, you will love this design. It is available in two different lengths, but can be easily customized to meet your preference. We made both views, but did not include the pockets in either. A modified version of the pattern was also made into shorts.
The pants are fitted through the waist and hip area, then flows into wide pant legs. The seams run down the front of the pant legs which adds a beautiful detailing to the design. There is an invisible zipper closure on the center back seam. The instructions are super easy to follow and the finished garment fits beautifully.
These pants have quickly become one of my most worn pants. They work well throughout the year and can be made in a range of fabrics to accommodate different climates. If you are new to sewing, the invisible zipper may be the most challenging part of the project. If you are concerned about the fit through the waist and hip, I suggest starting with a muslin to work out any potential fitting issues.
