Floral Skinny Jeans

Added May 18, 2014

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I have been dreaming of floral jeans and when I got this fabric I knew that; This is IT!
It is a floral canvas with silver treads – and I like this a lot!
I have used 2 regular threads for top stitching (in one needle) for this project. I got this advice from another member, Zsuzso – and have to say; Thank you very much, this was a great idea!
The top is an earlier project; www.burdastyle.com/projects/top-with-braids

Material Notes

Cotton canvas




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Casual, Preppy

    I can see why you love this fabric so much, it is fabulous, as of course are the jeans !! You did a wonderful job, I especially like the topstiching; looks so professional and I like the matching nail varnish, :-))

      Thanks a lot! It’s very little strech, so I prefer to have it more stretchy next time… :-) and thank you for favoring my jeans :)

    Dear Ellen, this is an original idea to make a pant with floral print as it is unusual to see such garments. It fits you very well and is nice whether with that blue top or with the red jacket you newly made.

    Great fit. Is the material with any stretch in it? You have been busy sewing Ellen. A great new outfit every week with hardly a hole in the pocket. Kudos to you!

      Thanks a lot Alice! It’s a bit stretch, and I know if I’m gonna make another one – I want it more stretchy! Luckily I made it a size bigger than I normally use :-)
      Cheers my friend!
