I was wanting a pair of front-pleated pegged 80’s style trousers – and Marilyn fit the bill! I chose to make mine in a brushed cotton twill in a bright coral hue. I found after finishing that there is a bit too much fabric in the front of the legs for them to be completely flattering on my shape…perhaps stitching down the pleats will help?
