New retro pants

I’ve come to realize that almost all my pants are getting too worn to wear, so i’ll need some new ones. Foto-0590This is my favorite pants pattern I think. My mother bought it and used it in the seventies to make some pants for my dad. I’ve used it on several occasions. Apart from being an awesome design, they have seam allowances already marked on the paper, so no worries- ready to copy. ImageImage

As much as I appreciate multi size patterns, the copying and adding of seam allowance is a work I dread.

And oh yes, the fabric is a wool blend- no sliding! This is gonna be great!

  1. Those patterns are still in great shape! How did you store them? Have always wanted to make my own pants as well. What is estimated time for completion? Thanks for sharing.


  2. Oooh la la, I love the cover art on that pattern! 😉
