I’ve had Burda Style 7195 in my collection for some time now and have been itching to give it a shot! I’m so happy with the way it turned out and am excited to try this out again in a different print, because I definitely played it safe with the deep navy blue. I really couldn’t imagine myself wearing a colourful or printed fabric with such wide trousers but now that I know I love this pattern, I’ll be venturing out with my fabric selection the next time around!
Pattern & Construction
To create these trousers, I used Burda Style 7195, view A and included pockets (sorry for not linking the pattern, I can’t seem to find it anywhere on the Burda Style or Simplicity site! I didn’t make any adjustments to the pattern at all. This was a very easy and pretty quick to make! If you’re new to sewing, this is a great pattern to try out.
This is 100% wool blend suiting from Fabricland that I purchased for $4.00/m. I got 3m as per the instructions and let me tell you how that was WAYYYYY too much. I probably used less than half! You REALLY don’t need as much as they suggest!
I added a gold drawstring end cap just to give it a more professional and finished look even though these end caps were just $2.99 on sale – goes with the theme of how cost efficient this make was! I attached them using super glue.

- Bodysuit – Under $20. Forever21
- Sneakers – $15 on sale. H&M
- Sunglasses – $12. H&M
I love these pants and this pattern! They’re super comfortable, relaxed and fun to wear. I’ll definitely be using this pattern again and trying out the other options that come with it.
