Rachel's "Kathryn Hepburn" Costume

Rachel's "Kathryn Hepburn" Costume
These trousers were far easier to construct than they look. The fabric is a loose weave fabric, similar to linen. I don't know what the fiber content is - maybe rayon. It ironed easily.

This fabric needed to be lined, so I used a navy fabic that was lightweight, like a batiste. I did not truly line these trousers in the sense of "couture" seamstressing. Trouser fabric and lining fabric were stacked and zigzagged around the edges, then treated as one piece. I put darts in the back and tuck detail in the front. A lined waistband was added to make them look dressy.

The trousers close in the back with two snaps and a button was added on the waistband for looks. They were hemmed by hand at the bottom.
