This Jeans Project has taken up a considerable amount of my time recently and I still have my video to finish.

I have been busy researching for the ultimate jeans pattern. There is a deceiving amount of work in a pair of jeans, especially made like the real thing. I have a pattern to please pretty well everyone and one that can be adapted for individual tastes.

I have made so many pairs over the last few weeks. Friends and family have been road testing them for me. I have been doing the rounds, checking out all the best makes on the market and taking note of personal tastes and preferences.

You wouldn’t believe that there are so many variables to consider. Single or double top stitching, pocket style, pocket position, shape and width of fly, the logo of course, leg width, shape of back yoke, belt loops, rivets!
Making jeans is not for the faint hearted. There are quite a few steps to go through. Getting the jean’s style fly front right is crucial – you don’t want a lightweight lady’s fly and you need to know a few tricks if your machine is not up to stitching the thick layers.

This is a project I have wanted to do really well, as I know it will be appreciated.

Do you recognise the T-shirt print? Left over fabric from my Jersey Polo-neck Dress. I used my T-Shirt Pattern No. 500

Material Notes

Denim – stretch for comfort. Look for added Elastine, Lycra or Spandex. Don’t forget to prewash you fabric before cutting out.
You can also use faux suede and leather, corduroy, heavy cottons and drills, wools and evening fabrics as well.

    I am looking forward to giving this pattern a try. I just need some denim with stretch and some more free time.
