A few weeks ago some friends asked what I was working on next, and I told them, “a pair of high-waisted jeans”. To which my guy friend replied, “ummmm Mom Jeans???”. No, not exactly… hahaha!
What can I say about these jeans? I am so in love. This is honestly the best sewing I have done so far… All the seams matched up perfectly, the top-stitching turned out so well, and they are so comfortable to wear. Plus I didn’t even have to rip out a single seam! I am really so pleased to show them to you all!
I used a fabulous dark denim which I bought for $11 – don’t you just love when Fabricland has sales??? I know I do! I ended up making the smallest size (32!) since I’ve heard lots of people say how large the pattern runs and I didn’t want to have to deal with tons of alterations since I would probably just screw it up. I’ve also attempted this pattern before making my supposed measurements of a 36 and it ended up being quite large and loose. Oh well, I will probably gain weight anyways once we start our family! =)
I only made two small alterations to the pattern this time, I changed the front pockets to make them a bit more rounded, rather than the more angular front pockets on the original pattern. And I also lowered the waist by 1" so they sit at my natural waist now instead of above it. I love the way they fit, and I think they look very chic!
