I was thrilled to see that Burdastyle has tackled a modern jeans shape. So I couldn’t wait to try Anita out. Overall I’m really happy with the fit and have worn them almost daily since I made them. It’s a little less tight than I’ve seen on other member’s Anita projects. I did follow my size, perhaps it’s because the denim fabric I used has a lot of give?
See my blog, for a step by step jeans tutorial where I talk about attaching rivets, sewing a real jeans fly and proper jeans pockets.
Stretch denim (98%cotton/2%lycra)
