Fashion details are repeated over the decades, as is the model pants skirt . Wedding in the 70s, the fusion of pants and skirt is more popular than ever. The slightly lower waistband and a side seam zip underline the figure-hugging trouser area and then fall bell-like from the hips to the hem. Theresa offers two leg lengths, the hem ends at calf height and the shorter version just below the knee. With the help of the drawn lines, the knee-length trouser skirt is quickly implemented.
Inside leg length = 83 - 85 cm
In these instructions, Theresa was sewn from a softly falling viscose woven fabric.
We recommend a flowing fabric, such as a viscose/polyester blend , wool georgette or tencel.

Cut out the pattern pieces from your outer fabric, lining fabric and interlining. Lay the fabric right side up. Lay the selvedges parallel to the center so that you can lay the front and back of the waistband in the fold. The pattern pieces should all be face up. Always align the grain arrow on all pieces in the same direction and parallel to the selvage of the fabric. Transfer all the notches from the pattern through a 3mm long incision with scissors or chalk and mark the ends of the darts. Pinch the seam allowance in the fold of the fabric because this is always a center. Markings define positions of dart ends, pocket positions, etc. Transfer these either with chalk or pins. It is best to first roughly cut all outer fabric parts that are completely covered with an interlining. After you have fixed the insert, cut it out exactly. There is also a video about gluing and fixing pattern pieces here.

To sew these pants you need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, alternatively you can use the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to finish the raw edges.
If you use a seam zipper, you also need the right presser foot for your sewing machine. In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something to be glued.
When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specially marked are 1 cm wide!
