Mushy made this pattern and I loved it because of the straight leg design and the pattern is designed for woven fabrics and not stretch woven fabrics. These pants are described as "fitted, below waistline pants has front side slant pockets, back patch pockets, fly zipper closing, back yoke, waistband, carriers and topstitch trim". Here's knottygnomeknit's version in denim.
The front pants have been shortened so the jeans finish closer to my hips than right on my waist. I've also raised the pockets because not only were they long, but they were deep.
The inner back seam has been increased by 2 cm and the curve is also deeper. The waist has also been lowered for the next pair of jeans. Below is my version of making the leg width less full. I was going for a more straighter leg version.
Now that I've finished these pants, I think I've effectively sewn this pair, at least twice. At least the amount of unpicked thread on my floor indicated these needed lots of tweaking. I'm not normally this particular but I really wanted these pants to look good and not home made.
I had lots of fun adding the rivets and jeans button. Using a hammer is definitely my thing.
I've also added more room for my thighs so hopefully the bagging around my butt will disappear (he he). The next pair will be green and should sit closer to my hips. I do prefer low rise jeans.
The top is Kwik Sew 3378. This top has recently been adjusted. I've taken 4cm out from the centre back seam.
