Sailor Pants

November 5, 2013

 

Being a fashion designer has it’s advantages. Creating your favorite version of sailor pants in a summer corduroy is one of them.

After much pattern searching and coming up empty-handed, I decided to work off of my vintage wool sailor pants. I found a great piece of military blue corduroy at the local goodwill, and figured if they didn’t work out I was only out $4 at the most.

 

The results were great, so I added some vintage red buttons from eBay, and searched the internet for eyelet how-to’s. I stole the lacing out of some pants headed to Goodwill.

    1. Thank you! Most of the hard work was in the details, but those details make the pants. After all, ready made “sailor” pants or patterns usually only have buttons (faux mostly) that follow the bib pattern.
