Enjoying the Style of Vintage Pedal Pushers or Capris
We had a touch of spring this past weekend, with temperatures reaching the upper 60s on Sunday. Which made many pull out their sunnier clothing. Which put me in mind of capris, otherwise called pedal pushers in the 1940s and 1950s, which provide cute details that you don't see in the store-bought variety. I love the ones that add special treatments to the hemline outseams for that extra touch of spark and fun:

And of course, a pattern that includes a darling blouse along with the pedal pushers is always a bargain! Enjoy these examples:
