I made these jeans using Butterick B5682. So simple. I cut a size 8 which read as a 24 inch waist and 33 inch hips but I still had to take the jeans an inch in for the outer and inner legs which means I’m not measuring myself right.Anyways, I love making jeans that fit. I’m so over the low cut jeans that I have to worry about when I bent over. Other higher cut jeans at the store were just thick in the legs and not flattering at all.
1 and 3/4 yards of denim, thread, one 7 inch zipper, one 5/8 inch button.
