Found this old pattern in my stash from my younger years. I am tempted to try making it now.

I use 70s patterns all the time. Go for it.

And when you do make it, please consider linking your post or review to the Vintage Pattern Wiki page because there are not finished garments made from it there. Thanks in advance.

oh please please please review it when you're done!

I love the 1970's pant styles and I'm curious about how the crotch/hips/waist draft differently than current patterns. In the TV shows (and from memory!) the pants from that era appear to have a narrower crotch curve - is this true? And I wonder if the crotch point is different, to get that 70's "stride" in the right place?
