I decided to cut up some old jeans instead of buying new and expensive ones from store. Sorry for the poor quality but its autumn and the weather is bit gloomy :(
I had a pattern for the tummy area but it is quite big. I shortened it but still it didnt come out just right. And i have no idea why i chose white fabric ’cos i planned to wear it in autumn when i dont wear light clothes.
I just cut out the zipper without any pattern and sewed the jersey fabric on. It took some time but quite simple actually :) And i took in sides quite a lot. Jeans were originally too big for me and they still are (especially from the bottom).
