I am a big fan of vintage fashion, and there is nothing that has the iconic sex appeal of a pair of lightweight stovepipe pants. When I found this awesome gingham pants video tutorial by Amanda Wright, on YouTube, I was so excited. We used to call them pedal pushers, clam diggers, or just simple slacks. This style of pants was really like our leggings before leggings were ever thought of. Thes lightweight cotton slacks are so comfortable and look great for almost any occasion, and they are surprisingly simple to make. All you will need is a pair of your old pants to cut a pattern from, and a few sewing notions, and you will be set to make these easy old-school pedal pusher pants.
In this awesome gingham pants video tutorial by Amanda Wright, on YouTube, you will learn to make these beautiful lightweight cotton slacks in a few easy steps. You begin by drawing a pattern on a large piece of paper, using a pair of your own slacks as a pattern.
Then, you will just follow the simple instructions, and finish these adorable pants with the waistband of your choice.
These pants are the perfect sleek retro design. They remind me of the ones Mary Tyler Moore used to wear, on the Dick Van Dyke Show.
