This is a pair of corduroy pants I made — the bottom of a suit, eventually — combining a basic self-drafted pants pattern and pieces of McCall’s 7637, a mens suit pattern from the early Eighties. This is the first pair of dress pants I’ve made and I’m pleased with the result. I even wore them to my 30th high school reunion last weekend!

I used cotton corduroy I bought in the garment district in NYC. I also used commercial waistband interfacing i found at Sil Thread on 38th St.
