I made these jeans from Kwik Sew 2123, an out-of-print pattern from the Nineties I bought online. They were fun to make and I love the fit. Lots of topstitching, which I do primarily on my Singer 15-91 straight stitch machine, using the inside right edge of my straight stitch foot to do the outer row of stitching, and using the wider left edge of my presser foot as a guide the second row of stitching. Still need to hem; I’ll wash them a few times first in case they shrink.
More info and pics on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness.
I used dark blue, stiff, cotton denim with no Spandex (which I don’t like in pants).
