Here they are, my very first attempt at making jeans. I started these by taking one of my favorite pairs, trying to measure them and draw a pattern based on the measurements. As I went along, I made some more changes and added different details such as different pocket on the back and my signature groin-buckle :)
I have really learned a lot from this project, the pockets and closure are so much better than the first pants I made (this is my second pair of pants ever) and I’m sure that next one I’ll make will be better again. But the truth is, they ain’t bad at all, and are already my favorite jeans. On top of that, other people like them too :)
