Jean-ius: Reverse Engineer Your Favorite Fit »
Type of item: Clothing
denim, rivets, metal jeans button, cotton
What was your inspiration?
Pattern taken from a pair of old jeans that are about to fall apart!
What are you most proud of?
They fit really well and the topstitching is mostly professional looking.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I would start with a lighter fabric that I did - my denim is really heavyweight and while it did all go together well, it would have been easier to try new techniques on a fabric I was already comfortable with. That said, I think my jeans will last years!!
