Upstate, South C...
These pants were completely inspired by stitchywitch’s The Kate Jeans. I used the same pattern, Vogue 8604. They are made in a navy linen. They were super easy to sew and I feel like they are very flattering. The wide leg definitely balances out the high waist. I wasn’t too sure about the pleats in the front initially, but I am really starting to like them. They add to the vintage feel of the pants.
If you’d like to know more about it, I blogged about it here
