Sometimes when you can't sleep at night you just have to make pants.
And they will turn out to be the pants of your dreams.
The pattern for these is from 1933, so the leg is nice and wide, and I found fabric with a perfect drape. Fabric Depot had every color, I'm thinking red is next, don't you?
Casey made a white pair, and I really love them, but that just seems like white pants and two fluffy black cats would be a constant annoyance. Too bad, nothing says 1930s like white wide legged pants!

Last week I went to Cats Pajamas Antiques and spent the better part of an afternoon going through the huge basket of old photos they had for 50 cents each. I found these four photos of these four girls, as cute as can be. My grandma pointed out the lady in the white is a waitress, too bad they don't say what restaurant!
The back of the top photo reads "Ida, Betty, Janie, and Bettie July 21, 1940 Kelso Wash."
These photos are so similar to my last post, one girl even has a scarf around her neck just like Janey did!
I really love the little skirt and bolero set the last photo features, I think that might be my next project...
