My first pair of trousers! Made from a very flowy denim-colored fabric that I got on clearance at Fabric Depot. The ladies working there had no clue what kind of fabric it was, and the bolt did not indicate, either. So! It’s a mystery fabric.
I was originally going to make the “bib” on the front, but I realized that, while it looks great on others, I would just be too self-conscious with it (pentagons on my crotch-area— no thanks).
I simply made a faux waistband instead, and I used some fun buttons from my grandma’s old stash.
I do like the fit! I wish the waist was a bit higher, though. The pantlegs are WIIIIDE, and I am worried they make my short, stubby legs look like Gumby’s.
That said, I would gladly use this pattern again, with some slight modifications. It sewed up very quickly, even with my token, silly mistakes.
mystery fabric! vintage buttons! Oh my!
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
