London, United K...
I was going to try Anita but my denim is mostly definitely NOT stretchy, so I used my favourite jeans pattern (from an old Burda WOF magazine) and added a back yoke. I used the shape of the Thames in east London for the back pocket detail. I thought it was appropriate as I live on a boat on the Thames and sewed these there!

very thick Levis brand-name denim from Crybaby’s Boutique, Prym rivets, and lots and lots of Gutermann upholstery thread (see my How To)!
