My first jeans ever! I’m SO proud because i think they look very professional :)They are really the second pants i make, but the first ones were just fleece pijama pants (not even hemmed :D). I had problems with the sizing, acording to the chart i’m a 38 but when i cut the pieces and basted them (roughly) it was too big and like made my butt look flat, then i re-cut the pieces to a 36 and changed the back seam so is a little more “closed” at the top (i have no idea if that makes sense, the last picture kind of explain).
It worked pretty good, but they are a little too high waisted for my taste, but i’m definitely will make more anita jeans and fix it.
Thank you for reading, if you have any questions, i’ll be glad to answer.
cheap sparkly stretch denim (1.6 m);
my dad’s old plaid shirt;
hook and eye closure (the only kind of closure i found at home).
