Fashion studios can quickly get swamped with textile samples, vintage pieces, old prototypes that haven't been approved...it's not a pretty sight. And considering how fast we're sending clothing to landfill, it's urgent that we find a creative solution to give old clothes a second chance.
These are 3 somewhat similar trousers I found in a vintage shop: probably butcher trousers, with the simplest construction possible - which meant a very unflattering fit that I adjusted, but also a cute fastening system with buttons and a drawstring that I kept.
Sizes S and M have front pleats and welt pockets; size L has the original patch pockets on the front.
All with adjustable waistband with elastic on the back, and random appliqués made with the first Mean Kitties printed fabric.
Only one piece for each size - see details and measurements on the gallery.
