Burda 9769

Back to Asha's winter wardrobe now.  

I made view C of Burda 9769 in size 7, which the pattern says is for 122.  Asha is 48 inches (120 cm), average size for her age.  The pants fit her well with just a little bit of room to grow into.  I am pleased with the overall shape.  Just like the pattern says, they are "semi-fitted".  Not too baggy in the waist area like some children's elastic pants patterns could be.  Yet, they are jumps, splits, and flips proof.

I used light blue chino I got from the RS in Pittsburgh.  They were cleaning out the closet and wanted to get rid of the overwhelming stack of donated fabric.  Anything that could not be used for making quilts were free for grabs.

Those are SO great! Very cute yet practical. You can't get much better than that! I love the color too.

My burda patterns have been so big, but maybe because they cut them bigger for toddlers. Those are some great pants. I should make some for Maryanna but I will add re-enforced knees because she is a little rough.

Asha is amazing! You both are very talented!

Asha is lucky. I wish I could tell my seamstress that I am ready for my winter wardrobe.

Love the costumes--I've made Jonathan be Luke Skywalker for the past two halloweens, but this year he got out of it :-) Jerome is a very handsome Luke.

Tine,
Yes, it does have 104. It goes up to 128, too.

Alison,
I highly recommend this pattern. I am ready to make another pair.
