Just last week I was wishing for Fall and lo and behold the last two days Fall has definitely been in the air! There has been a significant amount of cooling off as well as an overcast sky and a lovely, crisp breeze. Hooray!
Naturally, my thoughts are now turning to Fall sewing (when they are not thinking of house hunting, oy!) so I thought today I would share a pattern that I desperately need to get cracking on.
Aren’t these trousers lovely? I love these McCall’s illustrations. They’re so detailed and the colors have kept so nicely over the years. Unfortunately, this particular pattern was purchased dirt-cheap and more for the illustration than anything, so I didn’t mind that they only have a waist of 24 inches! I don’t think I’ve had a waist that small since my very early teen years. I’ll most likely opt to use the reproduction Simplicity trouser pattern that the vintage sewing blog world has been raving about.
I would love these in a nice chocolate brown or a hunter green wool. They would go with a few of my hand knit cardigans and would be just a ticket for Fall’s transitioning weather.
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend!
