I used McCall 7987 to make a pair of slacks in a 32" waist with 4" added to the inseam. I used some suiting material I had in my stash. I am not quite sure of the type, I think a polyester blend.
I usually follow the instructions the first time with a new pattern, so I put patch pockets on the rear with the pants, but I put a double-welt pocket on the shorts. I watched a video on Youtube to refresh my memory.
The front pockets have a piece that connects to the zipper to make a lining.
I like the way these fit. This will definitely be the pattern I will use for slacks in the future.
I like going to the local thrift store because I sometimes get a bargain. This time it is a Singer 560 Diana. This is an electronic machine from 1975. It is smooth and quiet. A bargain at $3.25. It came with a hard case too.
Thanks for stopping.
