I did not have a good fitting pair of jeans to copy in Kenneth D Kings Jean-ius class. So instead I drafted my own pattern for the first time ever, and used construction techniques demonstrated in the class. They are underlined with cotton shirting throughout to give a bit of body and to give some crease resistance. Hence, I named them 'couture jeans', but the only hand sewing I did was to attach the button.
