  • Description

    These very fitted, moderately high-rise, wide-legged trousers will have you looking and feeling like a classic movie star. This pattern includes a traditional zipper fly with fly shield, back darts for shaping, and optional front pockets with menswear-style pocket stays for a smooth front without gaping or bulging. You can decide whether to sew the optional lining. The inseam on this pattern is moved forward for a better fit to give you truly professional, classically tailored trousers for every occasion.
