Description

I found vintage brocade and really wanted to use it, so this is non-stretch fabric I’m using for stretch pants.Getting these to fit hasn’t been too bad, though. I just may not ever be able to sit down in them. I cut out the largest size, and dropped down one size to the waist, and an additional 2" in the CB waist seam.

I made these a lot longer because I think the proportions are better on me. If I really want shorter trousers for a vintage 50s look, I can always tuck them up.

The fabric was nice to work with: Handles and presses nicely, but really ravelly.

I love the piping!
