I made trousers guys! I've been after a red pair of slacks for ages but the majority of vintage repro companies don't make them small enough to fit me (on a recent dancing trip I was informed by a stall holder that I had "the waist of a child" after I asked what size they went down to!). I really really wanted a red pair though so when I came across this McCalls pattern in my size it was like fate!
Here they are in all their glory......
I had to take the inside leg seam in by about 1.5 cm to get them to fit, but for a first attempt at trouser making I think I did ok.
|I used polka dot ribbon to finish the seam edges on the waistband and the hem.|
