Monday Jean Trouser
Added Nov 3, 2009
These are a pair of denim trousers I have been lusting after for a while now. I used the Janina pattern, but widened the waistband and took in the pant legs by about 5 inches. Those legs are something serious! I have full skirts with less width!! I added clasps closures in the front and added a tab instead of a button. I also used fusible hemming tape to reinforce a few areas I did not want to top-stitch. I really do not like top-stitching in general and opted out for it this time. But when faced with hem tape and top-stitching again I think I will succumb to top-stitching because I felt like such a cheater ironing on the tape!
All in all I love these trousers. I will be making some in the near future with a stretch denim and slightly more tailored, and back one flap pockets.
