These are 1960s-inspired smart pants for the stylish beatnik from BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern. A trail of pintucks lead to a pair of stirrups, a look that evokes a young Audrey Hepburn or Mary Tyler Moore. Do without the pintucks and stirrups for a clean design, or crop them for a cute capri. We chose to sew ours in a silk-and-wool knit blend, but other stretchy fabrics, such as Lycra, may suit you just as well.
1 3/4 yards (1.6m) main fabric, 55" (139.5cm) wide
Lightweight fusible interfacing
8" (20.5cm) invisible zipper
1 hook-and-eye closure
