Hi all! I recently made these pants using Butterick 4646, a “teen” pattern from the 70′s. They were really simple to make and ended up fitting pretty well with no major changes. I lowered the waistline about an inch and they are still high. I think I am in love with these teen patterns, since they were the perfect length ( I am 5 ft even). That was shocking and exciting!I made them out of brown corduroy, but I might make a denim version in the future.
Sorry the pictures are really fuzzy, I ordered a new camera…
My only thought now, after wearing them a few times, is that the zippers are really scratchy on my skin when I sit. The pattern did not include any piece to protect your skin from the zip, like on jeans. So, I would add that to a new version.
More pictures on my blog, here.
I am also having a 300 follower giveaway of mostly vintage patterns, here, if you want to enter.
Thanks for looking!
