The Traditional Tap Pant
These are from the Folkwear pattern company, number 219, Intimacies.
They are inspired by 1920's- 1930's lingerie. Silk Crepe de Chine with side snap placket.
They are very comfortable and the ease around the leg opening is more moderate than the HP pair.
I love the side placket, and they aren't bulky at all. A nice neutral color good for a first attempt. I will be wearing these and assessing them for comfort.
Despite a most loved vintage machine leaving oil on them, and being generally uncooperative (skipped stitches, and feed dog issues), I am most satisfied with the way the stitching turned out. It is for the most part pucker free and doesn't look strangled.
