Did you wear these back in the day?...

Or was it just me and  @Tends2dogs   (for you, boho baby.  Heart)?  Mine were denim...I also had a striped pair that were repurposed as a circus big top hahaha!

@MacDuff  Not sure what they are - perhaps extreme bell bottoms?  I loved bell bottoms back in the 70's, but they did not look like these.  I remember having a navy but with while polka dots and I remember a pair of jeans.   I know I had more, but can't remember.

All my pants and jeans were bell bottoms, some bigger than others, for a period of years back in the day; but nothing like those.  They used to show Barbie dolls wearing those kind of pants.  Never saw anyone in real life wearing them.  My legs weren't long and skinny enough to pull something like that off.

Re: Did you wear these back in the day?...

Here are a few more I found while mindlessly browsing (when will this nightmare be over!!!!!!!!????).  I'm pushing 70 years old and definitely saw plenty extreme bells in my day. 

 

The first pic caught my eye 'cuz a friend had a pair similar that she made...hers were gingham IIRC.  Mine denims looked like the last pic.  They were really easy to make. 

 

Even Handsome claims (I believe him) to have made himself a pair...(oh if only a pic existed!!)...

No, I have never worn anything that looked like that and I have never seen them on anyone else...ever.
