Description

I used my tried ‘n true and much-tweaked stretch-denim jeans pattern, Jalie 2908, to make a set of summery capris. Once you have a jeans pattern that fits, the fun is all in the details. I was inspired by a couple of pairs of my kids’ jeans for these, where I added plenty of piping and some cute tulip-shaped pockets. I made my own piping using (me-made) bias strips and yarn.

Next time I’ll make the pockets a little bigger, and not actually overlap three layers of denim (which is nearly impossible to fold neatly, nevermind topstitch).
