I love vintage patterns. This is so darling. :) I wore a pair of shorts based on a 60s pattern today, and always dig how well they fit and the fact that the waistband is high enough to cover all my 30-something bits. LOL.

This looks really cute. I actually had to go back and do a double-take because I didn't realize it was a knit! It looks very comfortable and I love vintage patterns too! (ps. those tattoos rock!)

Hooks and eyes are… itchy-scratchy. What about making a nice threaded loop with a nice round button or two? Normally, you sew the loop into the seam. Only trick is to make sure the button goes through it and also isn’t so loose it unbuttons itself. Hope the one for you comes out as nice. Depending how “vintage” many of the older patterns were terrific. Women learned to sew from them. They didn’t have the internet, youtubes, and often not even a good sewing book. They showed cutting and seam lines, clear markings of notches and darts etc. Some even had little scissors to show you where to cut. Directions were usually clear and complete - no short cuts - and rarely ever wrong with assembly order. And, the paper was strong enough to last through many makings. They were usually only one size so you had to make your own adjustments if you were different sizes in different areas.
