DIY Wide Leg Denim Pants: TNT Burda 7122

HI Fashionistas!!!

Here is another long-term UFO! I initially made these pants in January, but I was on vacation and did not have access to my serger. So I deconstructed the main seams in February so I could serge the raw edges and re-construct them. Well, this pair sat on my cutting table for about 6 months 🙂 I FINALLY finished them! YAY me!


These are out of print Burda 7122. I have sewn this up before and thoroughly enjoyed them. This fabric was such a joy to work with.

It pressed beautifully for a nice tailored look. The fabric is a dark blue, it looks almost black.  This scarf is my latest obsession too.

Here is my Bollywood side pose for ya. My mum took these pics, so there was definitely a lot of goofing around.

I recently also wore these pants with this leopard crop top I made the last week.

To find out more about these pants, read below..


PATTERN: Burda 7122, previously made HERE. I lowered the waist by an inch as these black ones are super high waisted.

FABRIC: I used a denim sateen from Fabric Mart Fabrics.  It has a small amount of stretch, so these pants are more comfortable than the black ones made in a gabardine.
SEWING: These pants are not a bad pair to attempt if you have never made one. Mainly because an invisible zipper is simpler to install than a front fly zipper.
I love this style of pants and will be making them again, but I will draft my own pants from my sloper.Did you get any weekend sewing done? Do tell!

  1. I love your high waist pants! A great wardrobe staple.You can wear them with any jacket, blouse etc. By the way, I got a chance to see your interview on YouTube, That Sewing Blab. Thanks for sharing your sewing school experiences in San Francisco. What an inspiration to hear. I learned to sew when I was in middle school, but after that I learned a lot on my own. My interest is to learn how to make my own patterns and learn couture sewing techniques. If you ever start an online sewing academy let me know!

    • HI Patricia! Thank you! I love these pants! I didn’t even know that sewing blab was on youtube 🙂 I’ll check it out too!

      My interest is to continue teaching and also create educational materials for folks who want to be self taught sewists and fashion designers! I’ll definitely keep you posted when I have my e -course launched!
