Pumila Men's Jeans

Added May 26, 2011

Tokyo, Japan






I finally finished my husband’s jeans!

The pattern is Men’s Jeans from Pumila, a Japanese pattern shop. The muslin that I made before has a bit of pulling and wrinkles around the back crotch area. I examined several of my husband’s pants and compared it to the muslin. It turned out that the Pumila pattern has straighter curves than the other pants. My husband is a bit prominent around the bottom area, so that might be the problem.

I added more curves around the back crotch and length on the ‘fork’ area. The crotch is also lowered a bit because it seems too high in the muslin. And maybe that was causing the wrinkles?

Other alterations made were per my husband’s requests: making bigger back pockets and changing the straight shape to a slight bootcut by decreasing the knee around 1 cm all around and added about 2 cm to the width of the hem. I also changed the front pockets to jean’s style instead of slanted pockets like the original pattern and made button fly instead of zipper fly. I used this helpful tutorial on Peter’s blog on how to make button fly.

The alterations seem to work out, no more pulling and wrinkles! My husband really liked the jeans when I showed it to him last night. The fit was good and he said they were really comfortable. He already asked for another pair of jeans. I’m very happy!

    Seems like your husband thought the jeans were so super, that he now has super powers to climb up the wall :D. Love, em. They seem even better than the ones from some store.
