Now I am making these pants with a different style pocket I copied from a vintage Kwik Sew 411 pants pattern I had in my stash. Not only do I think these new pockets will look better, they are bigger. I can easily carry more things.
I purchased the fabric at the thrift store a while ago. I think it is a lightweight wool/polyester blend that is perfect for a pair of slacks. I am using size 36. Which is a 30" waist . Vogue uses suit sizing with this pattern. These pants fit perfectly, except for me adding 4" to the length. Also I made the jacket a few months ago, the sizing was right-on for this also, except for arm and body length. My chest measures 35". So might be snug on a true 36.

|Kwik-Sew pockets. I satin-stitched opening for a different look.|
|Inside look at pockets. I am going to serge the edges.|
|Zipper installation inside. I finished the ends, unlike the original pattern instructions.|
|Back pockets in progress. I stitched a Greek key design around the edges.|
|Try on with no waistband|

Now for the band and the finishing touches.
Thanks for stopping.
