I am last stop on Titchy Threads' Small Fry Skinny Jeans World Tour...or something like that (together with the amazing ladies Tasha from I Seam Stressed and Celina from Petit a Petit and Family - make sure you do not miss their posts!).
You can always judge the quality of a pattern on the results of people's sewing (and jeans is not an easy thing to make)....but we have seen one amazing pair of jeans pop up after the other. Yeah, this pattern is amazing!
Flat felled seams, top stitching, zip fly...you name it and Laura gives you a clear instruction on how to do it.
My industrial sewing machine is a dream sewing jeans on and is 'made' for top stitching. I definitely got reminded how (sewing) geeky it is to sew jeans and I totally loved it.
And yeah....I made color block again....I am sorry! I am even boring myself now, ha. But I really really like the mini trend with patchwork jeans (Farrah from Mingo & Grace made an amazing upcycled pair HERE) or what about THESE from GAP or THESE from Comme de Garcons that I have pinned - love!
I wanted to make a spring version and all the fabrics are fairly light weight and mostly light colored.
For the same reason I was planning on making them with roll ups on the legs so I added bias tape to the lower part of the seams (see photo further down in post) - except the inner seams that are flat felled and already pretty pretty.
I skipped to decorate the back pockets. I guess the color block was making them busy enough to look at. That is also the reason why I kept most seams with just a single top stitch.
They turn out real pretty on the inside too.
Here you can see the bias tape to make a pretty roll up.....and a bit blurred vision of the flat felled seam from the inside (the seam to the left with the double stitch).
A few close up photos in questionable quality. It was the most beautiful warm spring sunday when I took these photos and I just completely ignored the few things I know about photography....one thing is: do not photograph in direct sunlight.
Yup, good advice....because they turn out like this, ha. But the photo shoot was nice near our little local dam, river and greenway so you know.....
