The Challenge: #23, Modern History
Fabric: Lightweight wool suiting in a green Glen plaid
Pattern: Wearing History's Smooth Sailing Trousers
Notions: Thread, buttons
How historically accurate is it? Good, I guess.
Hours to complete: The prep took an afternoon, and the sewing another afternoon. Very quick.
First worn: Last weekend, for a Christmas party
Total cost: I think I got the wool on sale for about $7/yd. And it took about 3 yards, I think.
Well first off, Merry Christmas to all! I hope everyone has been having a lovely holiday season.
Over here it's been pretty busy, but I still found a couple afternoons to whip up a new pair of 1930's trousers. I so love the Wearing History pattern! It goes together so nicely and quickly and just makes a really good looking pair of pants.
For this pair, I used some lightweight plaid wool. I deviated from the pattern by adding a lapped, side closure with buttons instead of a zip. Next pair, I want to add some pockets!
And they're comfy enough for playing with the pups, too!
