I made these as part of the sew along, even though I was a bit slow and the sew along has already finished. This did work in my favour as I was able to see everyone else’s creations and use their tips. The most obvious change I made to the pattern was making them knee length. I also fashioned some cuffs copied from some similar length pants that I have. I made the belt loops a little narrower than on the pattern. The fit is quite snug (lucky for stretch) but still comfortable. I also used a green patterned fabric to line the front pockets and the inside of the waistband.
Black stretch denim with subtle herring bone stripe. Green patterned cotton fabric. Contrasting green thread. Silver jeans button. Silver rivets. Black heavy duty zip.
