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.
