My first Anita

I used size 32 for my Anita, it’s comfortable for me!! Thanks for great pattern :) I will make it again!!

I did some revision for my Anita. I shortened 3.5 cm at the 2nd adjust line , also shortened 6.5cm at the 3rd adjust line. Because my height is 150cm, but then it was too much. I think total 7cm was better.

Material Notes

Stretch denim(12 ounce)

    Thanks again!! Size 32 is my size. The hip line is best fit, but the waist is big a little. I think I need a belt. Also I changed length. (Please check the description!)

    Hey, your jeans look perfect. Unfortunately I don´t like my version. This seems to be a pattern for smaller sizes. Have fun with it!

    amazing! they look even better than store bought. today i saw a reeaaally cheap denim fabric and i thought “anita jeans!!!”. i was going to ask the same as Polychromatin: is size 32 your “real” size? or did you choose a smaller one?

    These are amazing! Such neat stitching and a great fit. You’ve inspired me to have a go, so it would be good to know if you did have to make a size smaller than you normally would. What thickness/weight denim did you use?

    I’m jealous! Be able to make my own jeans, what a dream… The topstitching is perfect! Was the fabric too heavy to work with? Congratulations!

    Hey! They look great! The topstitching is nice! Is size 32 your normal size or did you make it a size smaller? Because I just printed out the Anita pattern and find it really huge.
