Den Haag, Nether...
After making a trouser block to my own measurements, I was eager to try and make a real garment with it. I chose to try out that odd new fashion shape for jeans: a high waisted, wide legged pair. These fit at the natural waist, have a fly front, jeans pockets at the front and a triangular back yoke. And the outer side seam curves towards the front. The pictures aren’t that great, but I hope you can see it. I will add pictures of the inside later, because I am particularly proud of that. All seams with double topstitching are flat felted, all other seams are finished with bias tape.
