Description

I made these straight-legged jeans by modifying Jalie 2908. I dropped the side seams straight down from the knee, and I also adjusted a few other seam lines here and there as needed for fit. I still think the pattern needs a tiny bit of tweaking, but I’m very happy with these jeans.

Material Notes

Denim, cotton (printed with dragons!) to line the front pockets, jeans zipper, jeans button. No rivets, as I’ve yet to get up the courage to try them.
