Crystal Spring, ...
The are my first real (non pajama) pants. they have belt loops and pockets :) Pretty easy to put together, I altered the size of some of the pattern pieces and put in a hook and eye clip instead of a button/buttonhole combo. I hand stitched the zipper in (I tried it on the machine and hated how it looked) besides it’s way easier to hand stitch while watching Bones.. Sort of. :)
The pattern is copyrighted 1979. These pants keep making me think of Pretty In Pink! I feel like the outfit looks like I should have Duckie as an accessory, or like I’m dressed like Duckie.2 lol.
I know I’m quoting The Breakfast Club theme song, but I like it better..
