Leopard Print Jeans

Added Dec 23, 2011

New York, United...






This is my second go at leopard print (last year’s pants were cotton velvet). This time I used a printed stretch denim purchased in the Garment District in NYC for just $2.99/yd on a 60" bolt. I made these using Kwik Sew 3504, an in-print mens jeans pattern. Perfect for holiday parties!

You can read more about the construction of my leopard jeans on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness.

Material Notes

My denim looks to be a cotton/lycra, with maybe some poly too. I used professional waistband interfacing to strengthen the waistband so it wouldn’t stretch. To line the two front pockets I used a pre-shrunk striped cotton. I inserted a tailor’s hook and eye as a closure on the waistband.

    Totally awesome, love the fabric. My hubby would love them so I am hiding this as he finds it hard to understand that it is very unlikely even with our lord and master, Google, I would find similar fabric! But you never know!

    As I thought… amazing! And as I anticipated, best with a white shirt, cuffs undone! I love the 6th picture down. Really neat work :-)

      Thanks, Jane. I tried to provide a variety of “looks.”
