I love this pattern because of the way the seat fits. Simplicity 3850 used to be my skinny pant pattern, but we broke up after the red pants. It's nothing against Simplicity. I actually prefer the legs on the Simplicity pattern over the legs on this one. I liked the Simplicity pattern because I thought it fit me well in the back, all until I realized that it was giving me what the Fashion Incubator calls mono-butt. While mono-butt may be the current look in the designer jeans and RTW world, it's not very comfortable. I didn't know what I was missing out on until I'd made these Burda pants. And once I knew... well, I can't go back. You can have skinnies that are also comfortable. Go figure!
I've worn these twice to work already, the fabric has amazing resiliency. I wish I had more of it, I would make a dress too.
