When my grandmother died, she left me all these great patterns which I am so grateful for today. Some of them still has her handwriting on them. I like to think she would be happy if she had known that I would inherited her great interest in sewing.
For this project I used two of the pattern she left me (both from Simplicity), combined it with a newer pattern from Vogue. As always I added some details myself , as the pockets, the waistline and the fold at the bottom of the leg.
Sorry about the blurry photos.
