Catalog Sunday

Hi all,  I thought I would  show you how a little project I was given by a friend turned out…

1940s button front swing trousers copied from an old pair (not sure how original they were !)

but made up in corderoy, not my favorite fabric, but she was so pleased with them she wants a second pair…:)

I lined every seam inside with cream satin bias tape. this is a little thicker than the lovely rayon tape you guys can get in the States,

( I have just managed to get a couple of reels from Etsy.com ..yey) but it worked well , I think :)

We chose vintage buttons for the fastenings…and all in all I was very pleased with them…and i have a pattern

now if any one is interested and is a 30″ waist and 5’5″ tall …
