Land Girl Pants
Added May 22, 2011
I created these pants because of my love of gardening and sewing. I found the pattern for these pants while researching women’s 40’s garments. I am creating artwork and garments for a show in August inspired by this time period. During WWI and II women worked on farms in Britain and were known as the “Land Girls.” They were given a uniform and these pants were what they would wear. They are incredibly comfortable to wear while gardening because you can bend up and down easily.
