Originally by Vogue (9016), ("Easy to Make") 'Slacks with built-up or regulation waist line and choice of long or below-knee length. Built-up version is dart-fitted at front and back with patch pockets at front. Slacks finished on belt at waist line have dart fullness released at front and patch pockets at back. Ribbon suspenders buttoned over elastic loops at front are optional. Turned back cuffs on long version. Blouse is not included.’

This is a digitally-drafted 7-piece multi-size pattern for sizes 14 to 20 (fitting 26" to 32" waist and 35" to 41" hip).
Also available in size set B (fitting 34" to 40" waist and 43" to 50" hip) from this link:

5/8" seams are given. **NOTE: As with many earlier trouser styles, you may find the rise on this pattern too long. Illustrated instructions are given to shorten for a really good fit.**

In the images, you see Lil in her fabulous wool version of the trousers and braces. She was our top finalist wearing them with the 1945 Beach Tops in the EvaDress Fabulous Forties Pattern Challenge!

I LOVED this pattern. SUPER simple to do. I ended up still making the high waisted pants but cropped them and didn't use the suspenders (partially because i got frustrated turning the straps inside out and will eventually complete later). Here it is worn at the easter bonnet parade in NYC!

The printing instructions are so detailed and truthfully a hassle as I don’t actually own my own computer so I don’t have the required programs. Usually I can get print from my phone, but this is more involved. I haven’t printed this out yet because of that.
