I really wanted a pair of retro high waist jeans. I thought about using a vintage pattern, but thought that the modern Vogue 8604 might work. It worked so much better than expected – I love, love, love the vintage look, and plan to make these in other colors. I did add boning to the waist to keep the waistband from wrinkling – I used a flexible plastic that you can sew through called Rigeline. Highly recommended pattern, and this style is really flattering to curves! I have more detailed sewing info in my blog post
Lightweight denim from Joanns, and poly charmeuse for the pockets.
