Another unfinished project done!
I cut these out over a year ago, and last week I finally sewed them up.this pair of late 18th century blue & white striped pantaloons from Christie's auction house.
|Fly pieces and waistband.|
|The twill is fairly lightweight, so the rolled edge worked fine.|
|I got all the stripes on the crotch seam perfectly lined up!|
|Canvas on the lining part, fusible on the outside.|
|2 shank buttons and 3 whatever you call buttons without shanks.|
|Here you can see the addition to the waistband.|
|Hemming with one of those longish herringbone stitches.|
|They're a little narrower at the side seams, but not noticeably so.|
|I got lake crud in my hems, so I guess my stitches weren't quite small enough.|
