Sewing: 1940's Womens Slacks

Hello readers and autumn!
Sorry I haven't been posting as much as I should be and would like to, but everyone always says, life is busy, and it is. But I'm here and posting, finally! As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I was making a pair of reproduction 1940's slacks. The pattern is Simplicity's #3688. I've finished them and love wearing them. I had a few bumps along the way, and the zipper wasn't been very competent (as I had imagined) but they're awesome and turned out exactly how I wanted. Yes, I know that such a unique pattern shouldn't be the first one you follow, but I'm glad I took the challenge, and succeeded. So, without further ado, here is the finished product!


What do you think?
Next summer I think I will make a pair of shorts with
this pattern, but maybe in navy blue.
Until next time,
