In the late 50’s, I made my slacks from a Vogue pattern that was seamed up the front and back of the leg (and inseam, of course), with darts at the side waist. No waistband. The pants leg dipped slightly in the back and was open about 1.5″ at the bottom of the seam down the front of the leg. The front and back seams were topstitched to add detail. I couldn’t believe my luck when I found the pattern at a garage sale, but the grading for a size 10 in 1958 is obviously way different than today’s 10. My daughter graduated from SCAD (Savannah) with a degree in fashion, but they never offered this skill in the curriculum while she was there. Does anyone know of a source either for re-grading this pattern, or to get old Vogue patterns? I have written to Butterick and Vogue about it and never received any response. This is the best fitting pants pattern I’ve ever seen and, because the seams are up the front and back of the leg, adjusting for large/small tummies/backsides is very easy. Would appreciate any input. Thanks.
