I rarely wear nor make pants for myself, but I ‘d been wanting to try this 1958 McCall’s 4822 pattern. The fabris is cheap polyester, perfect for this project. If it turned out horrible, I can pretend that it’s a muslin….
The belt carriers are pretty interesting they are made from the same piece of pattern as the pants. There is a pair of darts on each pattern piece, which are stitched until reaching the waist, then slashed open to make the belt carriers. I’ve never seen something like this and I was curious to make them!
I’m not too sure about the finished result though. The high-waisted pants dominate my whole proportion, leaving only a small amount of my upper body to ‘decorate’. Maybe I’m just not used to wearing this kind of pants, my husband said it is different from what I usually wear but still look cute nonetheless. But I really enjoyed making this pants and learned new things from it. My favorite part is the construction of the belt carriers. I showed them to my husband and he was puzzled of how they were possible. Ha! I’m a magician!
