1940s | Pants / Trousers | Vintage Sewing

Academy 2953, 1940s slacks

January 4, 2015

It’s been a while since I have shared my vintage sewing projects here, I have loved getting the weekly email in my inbox though! And I have certainly been very busy sewing….

2014 has been a year of vintage separates, and it has been really good for me embracing pants (for one thing) and not being afraid to sew myself a pair (or several) my favourite pair is this one: a 1940s (I think) pattern, Academy 2953, in some beautiful linen from my nana’s stash.

I have always loved the Katherine Hepburn wide leg trouser look, so these are a nod to her and that chic trouser look that was so popular in the 1940s.

  1. What a great pattern you’ve found there! I love that very high waist. Yours look like the perfect summer trousers with the light linen fabric you chose, hope they will be worn a lot.
