Our wardrobes are always a work in progress – no? Our bodies changing, fashions changing, our styles evolving. We’ve been working on our jeans over the past few weeks.
I know – jeans are s-c-a-r-y, but NO! Sure, it’s a lot of sewing, and you need to know what to do to adjust the fit, but so worth it. I can’t wait to show you the finished fit. (I am already planning my many other pairs…)
Tissue Fit : Getting our patterns ready to try own before we cut the muslin.
Working on our muslins : Adding 1″ seam allowance so we can fit once we’ve basted them together. (tip -use denim to make your muslin, regular cotton muslin isn’t as sturdy as denim. Use denim, it will help with the fit)
Sewing : sewing sewing sewing the muslin. Jeans take a lot of sewing time…
Fit : Trying on the muslin – and going for a closer fit than this… and it’s not stretch.
Deciding that we should add a fly front to these jeans.
Mine are almost done. Black stretch corduroy. I have to tell you that the method used in the pattern I’m using is the EASIEST fly front I’ve ever done. A BREEZE. I’m not quite done, there’s still another step for the fly, but it was quick and easy and looks so great – I had to take a pic to show you.
