70’s skirt pants

January 13, 2009

I’m making these this week and making it an interactive process with the readers. If you’d like to see these and have a hand in their shaping, feel free to swing by my blog to vote.

I’ll post the finished pants Friday in both places!

  1. What a neat idea. These pant/skirts are lots of fun – but going to the bathroom in a public restroom can be challenging. 😀

  2. These pants are everywhere at the moment! Dressaday a few weeks ago, now here. I even noticed a copy of the pattern on ebay today (didn’t take down the link, sorry, but should be easy to find). It’s a real pant/ skirt revival! Looking forward to seeing the finished item.

  3. I have this pattern and I didnt really like how it turned out on me – something about the waistband I think – cant quite remember. Or it was too bulky at the waist. Im really interested in seeing what you do with it!

  4. I have wished all my life that I had learn’t to sew and the passion is there but the teaching never did. I guess that is why I hunt the shops every day for those lovely patterns and sell them on ebay……simply thinking that someone like yourself will be making one of my gems is a blessing to me.

    I truly have no idea how I came across your blog but I am truly so pleased I did. If I can ever hunt for you a pattern please just call. Or look up malmsbury cottage on ebay.

    Your skills are to be envious of and to be admired all at the same time.

    I will be back to see your work on these pieces you make always.

  5. Hi sewducky, Have placed my vote (I’m for the silky blue…). Can’t wait to see the finished result on Friday. I’m actually thinking a pair of these would look really great this summer for a cool walk on the beach… might have to look into a pair for myself now! I tell you, there’s going to be a revival…
