70s Blue Crochet Pants - Small to Medium


Vintage 70s handmade blue crochet pants with a straight leg, fully lined. There is a back zipper with a large button for closure. The pants are totally wearable as-is but could also be altered to give you more options. Please see details below.

Though the pants have a zipper opening, there is no opening in the lining layer behind that, so they have a pull-on fit, which can be a bit of a squeeze to get your hips through (see measurements below). The lining layer is attached at the waist and leg hems, and could be altered to add an opening to allow the pants to fit a larger size, or easily removed with a seam ripper for a totally sheer look.

The pants were also hemmed up, and could be let out about 4 extra inches (they could also be worn cuffed to reveal the extra layer crochet inside). The back zipper is slightly short, leaving a gap above it, but it could be replaced with a longer zipper. The elastic inside the waist is stretched out, but could be replaced.
