Don't You Forget About Me - Pants 6-1-13

Added Jun 2, 2013

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. :)

McCall’s 6619
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..

Necklace – Vintage – Pilgrim / Danish Design
Earrings – Vintage 80’s ( I think I appropriated them from my mom when I was 10)
Belt is from charlotte russe
fedora is from my (currently) non vintage hat collection (seriously, I probably have almost as many hats as I do pairs of shoes) :)
Sunglasses – 2011, Five below

Material Notes

cotton? it was from the stash.




Spring, Summer, Fall
Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Casual, Geek, Other, Vintage
