Burda 7486 + Simplicity 2255

Another recent outfit,  made the pants from Burda 7486 and the top from  S2255  view C, I have made this pattern earlier here, so won't be reviewing the top.

For the pants I did the following....
I love this top, it's so nice for the summer weather

Fabric: A soft twill for the pants and 100% cotton voile for the top
Pattern Description: Loose fitting tunics in two lengths. Fitted pants in two lengths.
Pattern Sizing:  Size 8-16, I cut size 16 with modification
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?:  Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow: I didn't use the instructions, I sewed it my own way 
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I made couple; here they are
(1)I lengthend the hem by 3", I still had to reduce the hem to 0.5"
(2) I shorthened the front crotch by 1.5" way too big in the front
(3)I made about 1" swayback adjustment
(4)I reduced the leg width by 1" (tapped from knee to hem)
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Love everything,
Would you recommend it to others? Absolutely, it's a wardrobe staple.....
