After the first successful jean dress I decided to try it again. This time with a pair of my boyfriend’s jeans (dark color) and mine (light color).

I have been toying with the idea of fitting the dress straight to the form. there is no pattern, just eyeballing.

Next time I will use a pattern.

Also, I will update pictures of them back as soon as I can.

Catch me on my website at “Ashton Miyako”:http://ashtonmiyako.com
and my blog for all the lastest updates going on in my area, life and friends.


Also, I will be finishing the hemline tonight as well.


Material Notes

2 pairs of jeans




Garment Type
Beach, Casual, Other, Vintage

    This is gorgeous! You are a natural draper as I see. Some people can`t drape, they need to use flat paper pattern. Your dress looks perfect and it wouldn`t stay long on the rack in store.

    I love the front seams. A sexy dress is a very good use for old jeans! :D

    NIce Work, great fit. I love the way the seams curve down the front.

    loove it! i think i would leave the hem unfinished (well, take a pair of pinking shears to it)….but then again i love the “cut off” look.

    This looks very flattering! I’d love to see pics of it on someone! It’s great what you can do with jeans, I really wonder if I’d be able to do that. Great job ;)
