Wearing History Trousers

By Cedar | September 23, 2013

We are just back from a very short weekend trip to Palm Springs. I have a lot of exciting things planned for this blog (I am ready to get re-involved and make it the space I originally set out for it to be!), but I will get into that a bit more in my next post. Today I am going to be very busy lounging about trying to regain my energy from traveling with a toddler, doing laundry, and unpacking.

I did want to share these jeans I sewed up last week. This pattern was from Wearing History. I made up three muslins (in the shorts version) before I got a fit I was happy with. I ended up making an entire size down from what I normally wear, but I feel like the fit is quite good now (though I know it could definitely be better). It was a very quick sew and I definitely want to make another pair. I’m thinking a pair in corduroy would be nice for the fall and winter.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Hooray for fall!

    So cute and so timely! I was just looking for good vintage trouser patterns. Quick question – what is the rise on these for you?

    Hi Adri, Sorry about the delay in my response. I measured from crotch to top on waistband on the front of the pants as 16.5”. I hope this helps. They really were a fun project to sew up….though if you do sew them I definitely recommend making up a muslin first. -Cedar
