Burda 7656 Capris

The first two pairs of capris made using Burda 7656. Very good pattern well drafted and the instructions are great. The denim pair is my test done in a light weight 100% cotton denim and the second pair in a cotton spandex woven. No alterations at all on the denim but changes the pockets and waist on the second pair. The waist is not to low - I guess you could say they are just a little below the natural waist.
In this photo it's hard to tell but I did alter the pockets on the second pair. I used a pocket off one of my RTW jeans and drafted a smaller pocket. Next pair I will make in a dark wash denim and do some fancy top stitching on the pockets like on many high end jeans pockets. On the second pair (green capris) I also made the waist band longer as to fit my tummy area.

I used Debbie's tutorial on Fly Front Jeans, her tutorial is my favorite!! She has all the info and step by step pictures - THANKS Debbie!!
