Description

These denim pants were made using Burdastyle 3/14 #115 pattern. I love this pattern. The only real change was that I needed to cut off two inches off the pattern hem so I wouldn’t waste fabric on the next pair. Easy to make. I found a denim with spandex which allowed for stretch. What I love is that it hits right below the navel but high enough in the back so that the waist is fitted just right. I have done other jeans patterns but this one is definitely a keeper and highly recommended. This particular issue has illustrated step by step instructions which helps anyone who has never made pants before.

Material Notes

1 and 5/8 yard of denim with spandex, 6 inch zipper, interfacing, 5/8 inch button

    Your skinnies are SO cute, I love them! Making pants always make me a bit nervous in terms of fit. Yours are great and certainly inspirational! -Stephanie

      Thank you Stephanie! Pants are intimidating but really not that hard. This particular pattern is great because the instructions are actually illustrated in the magazine. Lots of luck I’m sure your first pair will be great!

    These look great on you and I love the color.!!! :) I’m happy to see these sewn up….in the magazine they appeared to fit awkwardly, but now that I’ve seen your (always spectacular) results, I think I will try this pattern. Thank you!
