A new pair of pants for my husband that I finished last week. The pattern is Men’s Jeans from Pumila, a Japanese pattern shop, with the same alteration as his previous jeans.
Since the weight of the fabric is only 8 oz, the pants are quite thin. I forgot to take this into account and didn’t interface the waistband. As a result, the waist area got a little bigger after a while and is not as snug as before. I think I will take it apart and fix it later. But other than that, my husband said that the pants, especially the fabric, are really comfortable. The fabric is 100% cotton as well, so this pair of pants is perfect for these hot and humid summer days.
I use Prym rivets and jean buttons on this jeans. They are very practical, but I find the rivets and button styles are a bit limited. Next time I will try ordinary rivets and use heavier fabrics.
