Anita skinny jeans in dark denim

This is the second time I make these and I strongly recommend this pattern if skinny jeans are what you want. Skinny as in tight and tapered, not straight or boot-cut. The legs are super long though, so you might remove that if you don’t want a scrunch of fabric around your feet. The look good in the back too and gives my butt a good shape. Also note that I went down one size from my normal 38 to a 36, because I wanted them to really hug the body. I also altered the back pockets and added proper jeans fly and front pockets to make them look more like traditional jeans.

    Your jeans look great! It’s a lot of work but I find handmade jeans to be worth it since they are worn so much. It looks like you will get a lot of use out of this pair!

      Totally agree, this pair fits me way better than any jeans I ever bought in a store!

      Yes definitely hard work, but I actually find jeans to be easier to make than some other more ambitious sewing projects. The fabric is easy to work with and lots of straight lines :-)
