My new straight leg jeans

Added Mar 11, 2012

Minneapolis, Min...






You mean I can make my own straight leg jeans with custom fit? If i had known how straight forward this is, I would have done it ages ago. I made a few alterations to the pattern (Jalie 2908), mostly in the waist/waistband area and actually enjoyed all the topstitching. i need more denim. NOW.

Material Notes

denim with a touch of stretch

    Good for you! They look great. I made jeans once and it was so much work. Maybe I’ll try this pattern!

    Making jeans is (IMHO) one of the most fun things to do. These look great, I have this feeling you’ll make more :)

    They look good on you. I’ve made 4 pair using the Jalie 2908. I didn’t have to alter the pattern at all! Love it.

    oh super nice job…you may have started me on my very own jeans envy….being below 5ft even petite fit jeans don’t fit me…I really should make my own.

    These are great, they look like RTW! Did you make them using the craftsy.com jean class?
