I hate shopping for jeans because I can never find a pair that fits my short, short legs! (Kids jeans don’t work because I am kid-sized but not kid-shaped.) Enter the wonderful and wildly popular Jalie 2908 pattern for stretch jeans. Finally, jeans that fit, flatter, and don’t look (too) homemade! I’m never going to engage in the futile process of jeans shopping again :D
These are made up in dark stretch denim and topstitched with navy topstitching thread. Also used a jeans button and rivets.
More details on these and my PG-13 tribute to them on my blog.
