Swoon! These ’40s style trousers are so elegant, they’ll have you feeling like a Hollywood icon. With a beautiful pleated front, a generously cut cuffed leg, and roomy pockets, these trousers are both functional and flattering. Choose between a high shaped waistband (our special side darts give you an extra-curvy look) or a simple straight waistband. For even more options, pair the Lucille Trousers with the Stanywck Skirt bib and suspenders for a dunagree look or with the Stanwyck Bodice expansion (Patreon, October 2020) for a fabulous jumpsuit. You can even omit the pleats for a flat front, if you prefer—just watch the video to see how! I also go over pant fitting alterations, length adjustments, and construction techniques, so make sure you give it a watch.
