Description

Dispite being “very easy” it took me about five days to get the fittings right.

The legs were way, way too wide, so I took them in at least an inch on both side seams. The legs are still pleny breezy and nice and comfortable in warm weather.

I get a lot of compliments on these pants. Usually, from older men wearing Navy hats. :)

Material Notes

Heavy honey-comb cotton that was $18 per yard. This pattern takes 2 1/2 yards! I’ve laid the pattern pieces out over 1 1/2 yards and if you’re a size 13 or less and willing to take an inch off the side seams, I’m 90% sure 1 1/2 yards would work.

The end result was worth it since they’re unique and couldn’t find what I wanted in the stores.

    The old fashion mantras are again back on the curb and people are now looking for those so called classy designs and dress materials. And I strongly believe that sailor pants were one of the popular dresses that existed in the 70s. product activation failed office 2010
