Denim Capris

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm really pleased how the pocket detail turned out. It was kind of a half-copy from a pair of my old jeans, but it has worked so well I'm now using it on all my pants! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always check the stretch of your fabric, it can make a huge difference to the finished project. Give it a go! It's a great course with heaps of fantastic tips you can use across all of your sewing projects.

What you will need

  • Dark indigo stretch denim and dove grey topstitching thread

Q&A with Absmum

Screaming Mimi asked:

Absmum answered:

Blazo asked:
What a great idea to have your own "signature" pocket design!
Absmum answered:
Thanks! It certainly is a time saver :)
Ms. BB asked:
Great top stitching, great fit, really cute!
Absmum answered:
Thank you! The top stitching did take a little practice and I pulled it out and started again a few times but I'm pretty happy with the end result. I tied the threads off on the wrong side but it didn't always hold, that was my only frustration.
