7-piece hand-drafted pattern originally by Vogue, ("Easy to Make") 'Slacks with built-up or regulation waist line and choice of long or below-knee length. Built-up version is dart-fitted at front and back with patch pockets at front. Slacks finished on belt at waist line have dart fullness released at front and patch pockets at back. Ribbon suspenders buttoned over elastic loops at front are optional. Turned back cuffs on long version. Blouse is not included.’
5/8" seams are given. **NOTE: As with many earlier trouser styles, you may find the rise on this pattern too long. Illustrated instructions are given to shorten for a really good fit.**
In the images, you see Lil in her fabulous wool version of the trousers and braces. She was our top finalist wearing them with the 1945 Beach Tops in the EvaDress Fabulous Forties Pattern Challenge!
