Knickers

DSCN1444

I have just gotten back from a last minute trip up to the cottage. It was a lovely few days and the weather was cool enough to try out my new trousers. I altered a pair of my mothers old trousers and converted them into what my 1920's Sears Catalogue reprint calls "knickers". They are basically a short pant meant for sports. I am quite pleased with how they turned out. They are not overly flattering but they are so much fun to wear! I think I need to get some bright argyle knit socks to wear with them!

  2. I love them - All you need is a cute white short sleeved blouse and a Fairisle tank top to rock the land girl look!

  3. Absolutely love your knickers! The buttons are darling, as are the grey socks you partnered them with. Perfect look for those first nippy days of autumn that will be here before we can blink.

  5. That's a really extraordinary outfit and it would go at the Tweed Run events all over the world when you would wear them with a jacket and the mentioned argyle knit socks. Fabulous! Thank you for following. Hugs from Miss Maple
