Description

Some new corduroy jeans, made using Burda 7863 with some minor modifications: ie. added a zip placket and a coin pocket, flared the legs from knee to ankle by about 2.5cm each side of each leg piece, and custom fitted the jeans to my size.
The T-shirt is made using some leftover striped jersey knit, the pattern self-drafted roughly from some T-shirts I already own. The neckline, sleeve and hemline bands are aligned so the stripes are perpendicular to the body of the T-shirt, the only difficulty here was that the fabric had no stretch this way. But still managed to make it work…

Material Notes

Jeans; corduroy, jeans zip, jeans button, small amount of cotton for lining waistband and pocket. T-shirt; cotton jersey knit

    Wonderful job on both the top and the pant! Love the fit of both and the use of the stripe on the top is just awesome! These would easily pass for “ready to wear” except the fit of yours is much nicer!

    I can’t believe you made this from scratch! It looks like both the top and cords were bought. Fantastic job!

    Very cool! I love having a pants pattern that really fits now you can make quite a few and their fit DOES NOT compare to store bought. Even if I fluctuate in my weight, tailored made pants always fit and fit sooooo much better. They look great keep posting.

    What a unique ensemble for the household chores ballet with the feather duster. Lovely. The 5-pocket-jeans looks really great. Do those 2.5cm you flared mean it’s something like a bootcut? Doesn’t look that way. Did you use some other fabric for the inside of the waistband?

      Thankyou! Yes, I used some (bright!) striped turquoise quite thin cotton to line the pockets and the inner waistband. I prefer a thinner fabric to line these areas to reduce bulk. Particularly in the waistband, and with either corduroy or denim as the fashion fabric, there can be a lot of fabric turned under in those seams and the effect can be too lumpy and thick to be attractive.
