Hickory, North C...
My obsession with wide leg pants continues……
I used a 1970s Butterick pattern designed by Betsey Johnson to make these. I believe the original design was modeled after 1940s-style wide leg pants, but exaggerated for the stylin’ early 1970s seamstress at the time. :) The fabric that I used is a black and white slubbed rayon/linen blend. I really love the pleats and the high waist, and the fullness of the legs make them incredibly comfy. I know that this particular style of pants isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I will certainly be wearing these often!
I used rayon/linen blend fabric, a 7" zipper, thread and a black button for the back waistband closure.
