Changes I made this time around were to narrow the legs by about 2 inches. This gives these jeans a leaner silhouette, which I liked. Not the skinny jean, poured-into-a-sausage-casing look the papers are showing but narrow enough to be a stylistic nod to this trend.
The denim is actually rather thin, not a beefy, heavy sort at all. It was stash utilization, probably from Joann’s quite some time ago. My memory says inexpensive.
I decided to stretch my skills a little with the zipper and used Trudy, she of Hot Patterns fame, fly zipper insertion technique. You can find that right here on YouTube . It’s actually easier than the other method I had been using, and produces polished results.
Of course, now that these are done, we’ve swooped away from jeans weather. Highs are expected to be around 80 and more all week. They may end up put away until October!
