Double Trouble Mens Jeans

Added Sep 16, 2011

New York, United...






I made these white denim jeans for the Jeans Sew-Along I led a few months ago on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness. I made both pair using Kwik Sew 3504, an excellent in-print mens jeans pattern. My pair has a zipper fly, and my partner Michael’s pair has a button fly. A description of the sew-along can be found on my blog here.

You can access all the jeans sew-along posts by clicking the “Jeans Sew-Along” pic on the right side of my blog.

Jeans are fun to make!

Material Notes

I made these jeans out of white cotton denim, Coats & Clark topstitching thread, and jeans buttons.

    Two cute ;) I honestly looked at the pic and thought only of the shirts because the jeans are straight from the rack! They are perfect…times two!

      Thanks! Yes, those shirts are made from vintage 70s sheets.

    You two are so cute! I’m all for the button fly- less chance of an accident-ouch!

      So wait — does that mean you DO like zipper flies, Don? Or you don’t? ;)

      Thanks, Peaches! No, his outer topstitching is actually yellow (his choice)! But I did the fly in blue for some reason — I think I was too lazy to change the thread. ;)

      lol. Call it intentional and say it was a little surprise colour pop. :)
