40's Style Overall Pants

I took a http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/102011-houndstooth-bell-bottoms pattern, ignored front closure and sew zipper on the back and added cuffs. For bodice…take some basic bodice pattern and make a mock up. Cut out any shape you would like. This is your pattern for upper part of the pants. You can connect it with pants on waist or… leave separately and connect when desired with snaps as I did.

Material Notes

light weight cotton twill

    Did you channel Katherine Hepburn whilst making them?! I wish I were tall enough to wear clothes like these. Really, really lovely!
