Rotterdam, Neth...






I was in need of a new pair of jeans and this black heringbone denim was waiting for years in my stash to become a pair of pants. First, I drafted the pattern. For the pockets I used a left over from a shirting. The pockets have French seams at the bottom. the sides are stitchted into the side seam and into the fly. The fly and waistband are finshed with contrasting bias binding. The back seams and the crotch seam are felled seams. I am very happy with the fit of this pair of trousers.

    Nice job Martin, they fit very nicely. Making jeans, is my favorite sewing project, in all different fabrics. I wear some type of jeans everyday so I get good wear out of my projects. Your Self drafted pattern looks good to. I did a rub off of my favorite rtw jeans to make my pattern. Fit is everything.
