These are not slacks

Handwritten page of a diary dated August 21, 1966

she pulls out this magazine picture of a French actress and I about died. Yeah, I told her I’d sew her some slacks that are nice enough to try to get our school to not make us have to wear dresses every day of our lives. But I wasn’t exactly counting on balloon pants when I only have about a week till school starts and I’m going to have to make these up out of my head since there’s sure not a Simplicity pattern for pants you would wear if you were trying to dance for the King of Siam.

But I must admit, it would be funny to see the look on our brand new principal’s face when he shows up the first day and she’s wearing these.
