i am not creative

I bought it but haven't tackled it yet. I think with the trousers, as well as with anything like this, it would be a good idea to make a muslin to check the fit. I too am an odd shape for pants (small in the waist but quite large in the butt and hips! Smiley) ... due to that I plan to go with the skirt on this pattern.

Oh! I bought that one too but have not yet tried it.   (I'm having machine issues Sad ) But I love the retro reprints and especially that this one came in a plus size! Can't wait to see somebody's results!

I bought the pattern as well but haven't had time to try it.  I'm a sucker for buying retro patterns for .99 cents and then never use them...LOL.
