Pull-On Trousers/Pants - Burda 01-2008-132

The pin fitting for Burda 01-2008-132 has been completed.  This pattern is a pull-on pant with a partial elastic waistband.

The front pockets are what convinced me to give this pattern a try.

Other than the too-large waist, it looks like this pattern should fit. I chose the size based on the hip measurement.  Size 46 matched the hip measurement of a pair of pants that I like to wear.

There isn’t a zipper or some other type of opening.  Therefore, the waist area is loose so the pants can be pulled up over the hips.  When the pattern was traced, I went ahead and added for a fly zipper at the center front.  That way, if I don’t like the waist, darts can be added before the waistband is attached.

For grins, I pinned in some darts at the waist.  This looks better, but the dart decision can be made later.


  1. Are they kept up with an elastic band? I'm confused.

  2. No, the center front and the center back portions are a typical waistband. The sides have elastic. Take a look at the line drawing.

  3. Hello,
    I'm looking for this burda. Would you sell it ?
