Olympic Valley, ...
A few pairs of my jeans just bit the dust so I needed some new ones. As you all know it’s really hard to find new jeans that fit just right and the good ones cost a lot of money so I decided to make my own. I started with a plain pants pattern that I found some place and made several design changes. Then I made a muslin to check the fit. The muslin fittings took me about three tries. In the end I got the PERFECT pair of jeans. All together the materials only cost me about $15. That’s so much better than spending $100+ for a pair of designer jeans.
The top is another one of my designs. It’s a western inspired shirt made with all of my left over snaps for a kind of mix and match look. For the pattern, I used a drafting program on my computer called Garment Designer. I added a few of my own details since the program only creates very simple patterns.
For the jeans I used some light weight denim which was very easy to work with and feels like flannel. The shirt is made of a very thin light weight cotton.
