Bella Jeans

Added May 27, 2008

Basel, Switzerland






Bella pants in a light jeans fabric. Unfortunately it expanded a lot during the first day of wearing it, that is why it seems to long. I will have to tighten it around the waist. I think it is great for not so tall not so thin women, too. If you think it lets the hips appear wider, it is me and my 2 size difference between waist and hip.

Material Notes

black herringbone (is that actually the right word in English?) Jeans fabric with red buttonhole threat

    Thanks a lot for all the flattering comments. This piece is really not so difficult. The most work was done by my sewing machine going through up to 6 layers of denim. I have actually made it a bit tighter now around the waist (in fact 6cm). If I find someone to take new pictures I will upload them. I think it is much better now.
