These are pirate pants made after my block pattern and inspired by a model from Knipmode (a Dutch pattern magazine). I was a bit worried how pirate length might look on my size 48 rear; now that I see the result I think a larger woman can very well wear this length. They are versatile and can be worn in the winter with some thick wooly leggins under (like in the pics) or just as they are for the summer.
1.50 m synthetic thin fabric, a bit shiny and a bit slippery but firm. Silver decoration thread for the topstiching.
One of the most beloved American designers passed last night. We look back at a few of his designs.
