Now, would you look at these silly pants? They are just so small, it's ridiculous. You would think, in 1969, that they knew how to design a flared pants pattern.
Clearly, I'm joking. These are ENORMOUS. I absolutely love them. The legs measure 118cm or 46 inches around the bottom.
Wish you could still buy patterns for 80c! The pattern is indeed from 1969. I have made these a couple of times already over the years. The blouse is nice but not really my style.
...and right up on my toes. Even with a 2 inch hem, these are loooong.
Like, stupid-long. They flap around when I walk and if I don't wear them with high enough heels/platforms I will trip over them.
They just have a folder-over waistband which is very simple, and a side-zip fastening. I would actually like them to be a little higher in the waist, and I want to make another pair in a very soft denim. This pair is made in a denim which is fairly stiff, so they stick out a bit.
Especially when you stand like this.
Or this (this was taken while I was attempting to pose for the first photo above. I have a lot of photos that don't usually make it to an actual blog post. I call them transitional-posing photos. I just like the weirdness of this one).
Wave your feet and your flares like you just don't care.
Not sure why I look a bit grumpy in these photos. Next time I will be all sunshine and rainbows.
