Description

And to think, there was a time in my life when I thought I would never even think about making my own jeans. Oh, how young and foolish I was then…

Well, maybe most wouldn’t define them as jeans, but I love my Denim clovers and I want to shout it to the world! These pants are gloriously easy to put together, and I can’t help but adore the result. They might not work for every body, but Colette patterns Clovers work very well for me.

I also made the top, from Dixie DIY’s free pattern on her blog. It looks amazing on Dixie. It looks less so on me. Oh, well, c’est la vie!

I did flat felled seams and omitted the pockets. No really changes to the pattern otherwise.

More on my blog!

    I think the clovers are great, but, I clicked on the picture for the shirt! It’s great!

    Congrats! I am planning to make my own jeans as well, but I didn’t dare yet (my sewing machine has some issues with denim fabric). I like yours very much with that pink jacket!
