In the Navy: My 1940s "Seabee" Trousers

Oh, happy day, my high-waisted, wide-leg “Seabee” trousers are finally finished! It all started when I decided to join The Cupcake Goddess‘ Trouser Sew-Along back in January, which finished in February I believe (it’s been awhile). I didn’t do the official sew-along BurdaStyle pattern. Instead I went with a pattern I already had in my stash, the 1940s Empire Waist Trousers from the Decades of Style Pattern Company in Berkeley, CA. She updates vintage patterns from the 1910s to the 1950s, so this pattern is a style that would’ve been sewn up by home seamstresses of the early 1940s! These trousers are so incredibly comfy – I LOVE them!
Please excuse the overcast day. It’s the best we can get around
here lately. (And, I’m freezing!)
