Description

I haven’t had jeans or black pants in years, but this fabric inspired me.

I used my own pattern for these pants and blogged about it here http://madebyjulianne.com/?p=2305

Material Notes

The denim has a tiny bit of stretch and a waxy finish that leaves my legs dark gray at the end of the day. The fabric for the pockets and waistband is actually the backside of the black fabric.

    hey, that fabric looks a little familiar! i have a pair of bought jeans very similar fabric and they also left me grey. soak the jeans for 15-20 minutes in very salty or sea water, that should help. good job on the jeans btw :) bet is great to have jeans that fit without the huge pricetag!

      Ooh I like that idea. I’ve washed them about 8 times and they still leave my legs stained, although not nearly as bad as when they were new! I will give it a try on my next day off. Thanks!
