Sparkly Jamie Jeans

Added Apr 13, 2014

This time I’ve made a pair of skinny jeans by Named patterns, the Jamie Jeans.

This fabric, 120cm-wide stretch denim with lurex, came from McCulloch & Wallis. According to the Named fabric requirements chart, I should have needed 175cm but I used only 140cm. A gold lurex thread woven into the fabric gives it a healthy amount of sparkle which I like.

I sewed the Jamie Jean in a size 40 without any major alterations: I only tweaked the crotch seam a little bit, adjusting it to the size of my bum. I think there is some more to remove from the crotch seam but overall I am very glad with the fit.

      Sparkle forever! I don’t know what is happening with me, but I am attracted to shiny fabrics lately :)

    Good result. Imagine these would be quite tricky to make, and even trickier to get them looking so great!

      Awww you are very kind! It just requires a lot of patience and precision which is the exact opposite of me :S

    В таких штанях облягання – найголовніша річ, а гарне облягання на гарній панянці – ще головніше:-) Складна модель – багато конструктивних ліній; і мені також подобаються вкраплення люрексу на ткані.

      Дуже дякую! З першого погляду здаэться, що брючні вироби не такі вже й складні для шиття, але для мене особисто – це найважчий вид одягу. Треба буде ще пар з десять пошити, перш ніж нормально виходило. От на цій моделі джинсів і буду тренуватися :)
