A week or two I finished these trousers for my husband. We've been asked to go on trek next summer, so I thought it would be fun to get him something more authentic than what he has. I borrowed the Period Impressions Button Fly Trouser (775) pattern from TITP. It worked okay. It was missing one pattern piece -- the pocket facing, but I was able to fake one. More detailed instructions would have been very helpful. I tried so hard to get my plaid lined up, but even with all the work I still messed it up. Oh well, better luck next time. I don't know that I've ever lined up plaid before. I was originally going to make a broadfall pant that had a more narrow leg, but learned that was from a slightly earlier era and decided to go with the button fly instead, which used more fabric, so I ended up piecing part of the back-bottom leg to make it all work. There's a watch pocket in these and I was totally shocked that I was able to figure that out.
My poor plaid!
Skinny, skinny, skinny!
I would have liked to have used Past Patterns #014 or Laughing Moon #119, but went for the free one.
I also got inspiration from these Lynch Plaid Trousers from the Gentleman's Emporium.
