This was made from the 1950s vintage pattern Advance 6688. It was almost ridiculously easy to make, except for their cutting diagram, which didn’t work at all. But that meant I had to cut the back panel in two separate pieces, and I could put the zipper in the back and add side seam pockets!
Black cotton with a subtle grey print, interfacing for the waistband, invisible zipper.
