Hey everyone! I’ve been waiting for the chance to make these pants for sooo long!! I have really loved the trend of patterned dress pants for a while now, I just needed to find a decent pattern.
The fabric I got as a hand-me-down from a friends grandmother.
The pattern I got for only 25 cents at a thrift store. It’s a vintage 70’s McCalls pattern 5701 that I am completely in love with. I hope to make the long skirt, tank top, and maybe the over shirt.
I absolutely love the fit of these pants and will totally make them again with another solid color. The only thing I would do differently is switch the side of the fly. For some reason the pattern has it going the opposite way, idk. I also took in the waist line with two darts in the back to stop the band from puckering, now I don’t have to wear a belt with it.
I just love the high waist look, it really shows off everything perfectly.
Well what do you guys think!?! I LOVE IT!
