After making three fitting toiles for my first pair of jeans, I really felt like I needed to utilize that work once more to get better value from my time.
this, this and this. In particular, the pockets from these jeans have inspired my own.
After wearing these last night, I realised that I may have hemmed them slightly too short, but I did take a deeper hem just in case. I might wash and dry them a few times before I fix the hem.
The good thing about these jeans is the total cost:
1.5 meters of denim - $12 less 10% discount
Jeans zipper - 20c from the Op Shop
Button - from stash
Black top stitching thread - left over from first jeans
Pattern - free from the library
Total cost: $16.40 - Yeah!
I'm really struggling to take photos at the moment. I feel like I've lost all my inside locations and shooting outside isn't working for me and the dog kept knocking my camera over and I'm worried about what the neighbours will think if they see me. Out of 12 self timed photos only two are in focus.
