easy ellen!

Another free Burdastyle pattern..this time the Ellen trousers. I found them super-easy to put together but i'm not sure what i think of the shape of them. I'm really not into tapering-in at the ankles..tends to widen me at the hip....not the way i'd want to go if i had a choice!
And when i don't stand up straight they look a little bunchy.....mmmmm...not sure.
I'm not 100% about the funny pocket details either, but i think they might be growing on's maybe a pattern that i could customise a bit and improve it...i'll maybe try again with a wider ankle and welt pockets....
