Bella pants

Added Feb 4, 2010

I saw the bella version of nessie so I decided to make some for myself in a light denim fabric. I changed the pockets to a simpler shape and shortened the opening in the front a little. I used extra thick yarn in yellow which emphasises the stitching and gives the typically jeans look. Unfortunately I printed the pattern way to big which I didn’t realize until the first fitting. So I already had to change and resize them. Ladies, always do the square test!

I like the result and wear them on a daily basis now. They’re really comfy and they high waste helps to cover my baby belly.

Material Notes

Denim (jeans cotton)
extra strong yarn




Garment Type
Bohemian, Casual, Vintage
Cotton, Denim

    I adore these. Such a fantastic fit… & I personally give triple kudos for the yarn stitching. I second the comment before mine – I would love to acquire or make a pair of these myself.
