Anita 6006 Jeans

Fort Worth, Texa...






The first & last time I will ever attempt to make jeans. These were definitely a labor of frustration. In the long run they didn’t turn out half bad despite the sewing, ripping out seams, re-sewing, and language of a sailor. I underestimated the pattern and ended up making the jeans way too big for me, which was one of the frustration, so I had to do a lot of taking in in the legs and ended up using darts in the back to keep the waist from gapping. Even still they are still a little bit too big, but I am hoping they will shrink in the wash. I did change the pockets from the original pattern and made mine more of a standard jean pocket and added the embelishment to give them a little more flair. The are very comfortable and they look cute with a top. I say it is the first and last time I will make jeans but I am sure I will try again, one day.

    wait! how come they were huge!? I have the pattern ready to cut on the fabric (a streching canvas) and now I’m starting to doubt…

    Hey this good :-) and i admire your patience to actually finish them! I also tried the anita pattern and for some reason they were HUGE!! I think the sizes of this one are totally wrong, they also put me off trousers. Have still to find a pattern that actually fits…
