Burda 7991 Young Fashion Teen View C - Pants

Here is the trial run of the View C pants from Burda 7991. We found success with the earlier View B 7991 cropped pants, and L needed long khaki pants for summer volunteering. This surprisingly nice green, tan, cream stripe fabric was stash from the Wal-Mart $1 table (moment to sigh and reflect those days gone by). The selvedges had a fringe and I used it to trim one of the left side pockets. L loved them! It seems to me Burda's commercial patterns tend to run short in the tops and long in the bottoms -- These are with only 1" added (!) I'll have to trim the khaki pair an inch shorter for the hospital. The View C's also have the same nice back yoke seaming as the other views and L decided to skip the back patch pockets again. They are just placed oddly, under the tushie?!

Update 6-4-08 -- I finished the khaki pair less than 12 hours before she needed to wear them!
