Retro Simplicity 4044

I used retro Simplicity 4044 pattern to create these 1940’s style pants.  The fabric is a wool suiting.  I absolutely adore the front pleats.  The construction was fairly simple with only 4 pieces and can be completed in a day.  If you love 40’s style I highly recommend this pattern.  The only alterations I made were to reduce the width a bit by bringing in the inseam a half inch on each side.  Read all about them on my blog!

I've been sewing a little over a year now. I just started making my own clothes and I can't get enough. Love vintage style. I'm always looking for inspiration. I love changing.
