Jalie jeans 2908

This is the coolest pattern. I'm bias. After unpicking the previous woven pair V1204, this pair was much quicker to finish. And they really are low rise.
The fabric is a stretch woven from the Remnant Warehouse ($3 for 3 metres) and the metal zip was 20c from a sale. So really, this pair were definitely low cost and low stress.
By the time I made this pair, I knew that the centre back seam was going to be trimmed back by 3cm because of my sway back. Next pair, I'll raise the centre back yolk by 3cm so the back jeans don't drop when I bend over.
I didn't use the topstitching thread on the zipper opening or down the centre back. Sylvia at work said this made these jeans look more dressy. I did add two coin pockets. Again, I had a machine with top stitching thread, a second machine with sewing thread and the overlocker set up for these jeans.


Next pair will have smaller back pockets and smaller coin pockets. I'll petite them.

A very cool pair of jeans, and I like the red ones too! Your fit is spot on. I think your pocket decorations are perfect; abstract and unfussy. I really look for that in a pair of jeans.
