This is a pair of mens pants I made from an unusual warp print fabric I found in one of those cheapie fabric stores in the Garment District. I used a vintage Simplicity pattern (5048) from the Seventies. I narrowed the legs (the original called for bell bottoms) and lowered the rise a bit.
I have actually worn out a number of times and they definitely get noticed!
I actually cut the fabric perpendicular to the grain (rather than parallel to the selvage) since I liked the way the design looked more that way. Since the fabric was backed with some sort of interfacing, I didn’t think it would matter, and it hasn’t.
