Jean-ius: Reverse Engineer Your Favorite Fit »
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Traditional, Classic
Stretch denim, pink top stitching thread
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a pair of jeans that were high waisted and fit me rather than having to despair at finding jeans in a shop that would have to be drastically altered!!
What are you most proud of?
I did not have a favourite pair of jeans so I made these with a pattern. First I made a toile then altered that, then made the jeans with a lot of trying on and basting and adjusting. I am so pleased that they look like jeans with flat fell seams, rivets and a coin pocket and that they fit!!!!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Measure everything very carefully as it helps so much further down the path of construction
