Ruched Kids jeans
Added Nov 15, 2011
This is (yet) another variation on the Jalie 2908 stretch jeans. The pattern is for flares, but my kids are all about skinnies these days. Just for fun, I added some ruching to the bottom of the front leg, for that extra-scrunchied look, and swapped out the pockets for shield-shaped ones. I also added (as I always do for the kids) buttonhole elastic to the waistband.

Some highly super-stretchy “denim” from the thrift store. It’s very soft and comfy, not very sturdy. Topstitching thread, piping, buttonhole elastic.
