I saw the bella version of nessie so I decided to make some for myself in a light denim fabric. I changed the pockets to a simpler shape and shortened the opening in the front a little. I used extra thick yarn in yellow which emphasises the stitching and gives the typically jeans look. Unfortunately I printed the pattern way to big which I didn’t realize until the first fitting. So I already had to change and resize them. Ladies, always do the square test!
I like the result and wear them on a daily basis now. They’re really comfy and they high waste helps to cover my baby belly.
