Elephant Pants - Tailoring: How to Begin

It's been a while since we heard from our old friend The Seventies, so let's catch up with our favorite always-hungry always-sleeping-late good-judgment-having primered-van-with-a-mismatched-door-owning friend to see what's new in The Seventies. Today, let's learn about making your own clothes in 1975!

To look smart, pants must fit properly. The advantage of making pants yourself is that you can adjust them to your body contours, or completely ignore them, for that "my legs are made of traffic cones" look that everyone is simply mad about.
The pattern sheet explains how to fit and construct these basic pants, using an ordinary church bell as a form, in case you can't find a tape measure. Sizes C and E are given on the pattern sheet, so you know where to ignore them. Sizes B, D, and F are also letters, and have not a lot to do with these pants. See the Body Measurements Chart and choose the proper pattern size to disregard by measuring your hip measurement and forgetting all about it.

Under no circumstances should you loan The Seventies money or allow it to get into your car.

"cool colors make it appear smaller." That, friends, is what's known as a dilemma.
