Hot Pants

Hot pants were an overnight sensation. They were only worn by young girls but all shapes and sizes of young girls wore them. I had a block pattern and made so many different hot pants in all shapes, sizes and colours for myself and my friends. But you had to be careful what colour underwear you wore underneath as the ultraviolet lights in discos would show up any white underwear.

    I made a pair and remember wearing them with pretty button fronted smocks @ 1971 and ribbon X tie up the leg sandals.

    Hot Pants were a real fashion statement in the early 70's they were figure hugging short of many colours, I loved the hot pink colour. Worn with a co-ordinated coloured tight fitting top, and usually with knee high boots.

    I had a black pair which I bought on a girlie holiday in Ibiza in 1994, still cringe at the thought of me wearing them - no I wasn't fat, I'd teamed them up with a very fetching white shirt that tied up at the front!

    I remember these great pants, they were all the craz at the time. The 70's was a great era, I miss the good times and the fashion. Goldie

    I had a pair of red hot pants in 1971 which I used to wear to college with my white boots. I always remember "My Sweet Lord" was out at the time by George Harrison
