Miss Fancy Pants

I made these pants with the idea of recreating Audrey Hepburns infamous capri pants. Although they are little brighter and a little less graceful I really like them.

I used the cropped trouser pattern with stretch cotton drill that I already had at home. It was a really simple pattern and lots of fun to sew.

    I love these. I have been looking for a pattern to try them out myself- guess that I’ll have to give it a try. The color is great, too!

    Very nice indeed! And how did you manage to get around the saggy crotch? I’ve got a 60s pattern waiting to get past the muslin stage but I keep encountering the dreaded saggy crotch.

      Thanks emli! So, ( for lovely fairyprincess too) I found that I got the saggy crotch when sewing the front to back seam last. Once i realised this i flipped them inside out and sewed along the inner thigh seams, making sure the crotch wasn’t too angled. Gosh, i hope that makes sense. You just have to look at the crotch as a cross section – front to back (belly to bum) and inner thigh. Hope that hekps
