( look gang, I made pants!)
Well here we are with New Vintage Wardrobe project # 25:
Modified McCall's 6323 sailor pants circa 1973
they have a back zipper, and it doesn't hurt to sit on it, after all
These needed some modification. the legs were voluminous rather beyond belief,
so even though I made them is a sweet soft chambray, they just had to be cropped off.
lots of fun top-stitching practice.. nice n' neat
The waist had to be dropped as it (in true 70's style)
seemed to come up to the bottom of my bra.
They still aren't one of the most flattering garments I've ever sewn
but they are my first fitted trouser, they are very comfortable,
have been rendered relatively stylish
and I think that is worth celebrating.
Just in case you need to see the pattern..
I'll post it up at flickr in all it's disco wonderland glory.
