Very Easy, Very Vogue 7313, fitted and flared or tapered skirt, above mid-knee or tapered pants have shaped, partial waistband. A,B: Front princess seams. C: front pleats, B, C: Straps with back-button closing.
Remember the high waisted look from the mid- to late-eighties? What about suspenders? Not the rainbow-brite suspenders made popular by Mork from Mork and Mindy, but the more subdued, business-like suspenders from the yuppie era.
Well, this pattern combines both trends. Although the suspenders on this skirt and pant are anything but business-like. They're a bit s*xy wouldn't you say? They appear to be shaped more like a cut out halter top.
This pattern isn't one that I was interested in at the time and would look rather silly on me today, but if you're interested, it's available on my new Etsy retro/vintage pattern shop.
