Grey Jeans!

I made these jeans by copying an existing pair that was falling apart! They would be perfect though if the fabric had a little stretch! The pockets are made of a flowery light blue cotton!

gray denim





my old jeans!

      Actually it was quite thick. It was easy in the sense that denim is not at all slippery but yeah in places where there were many layers of fabric it was a bit hard. And I did break a couple of needles. But I found that in the places where its really thick I would just lift the sewing machine foot so it could go over it and sew like that. :)

    I love the belt loops! I can’t believe you made these from a copied pattern. Excellent job! Thanks for inspiring me to meet my next challenge!

    Those are amazing! I can’t believe you only used an old pair of jeans for a pattern! Have you made jeans before? I’m so jealous =(
