Montego Bay, Jam...
I needed some capris because I had a lot of denim lying around and I really didn’t want to buy any capris in the store because that would have been a waste of money. I really have a struggle with finding the energy to sew now-adays but I was able to finish this along with another one.
They fit well, however because I have a small curved back, I sometimes have trouble fitting the back of any type of pant or shorts so I just give it pintucks in the back until I figure out away of making it fit like I would like in the back.
I was totally happy with my capris until guess what? I gained weight 2 weeks after making them and they couldn’t fit anymore. Can you believe it? I could have cried, all that time and energy lost. I plan to remake them again when I can though…
really soft flexible denim that I cannot find anymore… what can I say? Fabric stores in Montego Bay suck..
