I.Love.Dark.Denim. This is just a fact of my life… I own many pairs of dark denim jeans, but when I saw my friend’s pair of dark denim True Religion jeans I immediately wanted a pair. However, I am not down with spending $295 on a pair of jeans (!!!), so I decided to make my own!
I borrowed the Sew U: The Built By Wendy Guide To Making Your Own Wardrobe from the library and used the pants pattern to make my own jeans. I used a heavy, white embroidery thread for all the top-stitching and instead of a button on the fly, I used a hook-and-bar closure since I kind of messed up the waistband a bit.
These jeans are only the fourth zipper I’ve EVER put into a garment, and the first waistband I’ve ever done. So all in all, it’s not too bad for a beginner eh? More details on my brand-spanking new blog Le Printemps Jolie
