Reverse Pin Tucks Revisited - From the 1920s and the 1970s

A while back, I posted about reverse pin tucks as used in the 1920s, design courtesy of Ruth Wyeth Spears, on the cuffs and hemline of a blouse.

And then I found this inspiring pattern, which features - you guessed it - reverse pin tucks on skirts and pants! The pattern is Vogue 7099 from 1978, and currently in my shop. Artful design endures. :)
