I drafted these myself using my own system which you can find on my blog
I hope these are not mono-butt. I think the back thigh needs narrowing, but the front fits great! It’s much better to draft your own jeans than try a number of patterns and adjustments! (Plus, from now on, I consider it cheating to use a commerical pattern — I must draft my own!)
If you draft your own using my method, please let me know how you got on — I’d love to see them!
I used about 1.5m of stretch denim, some cotton-tape in the waistband seams, and some remnants of pink cotton for the pocket linings and appliqu.
