Jeans Anyone?

Thank you for your encouragement on the floral dress. It may not be something I typically wear but I have to admit it's pretty cute. At almost 29 years of age, I'm still finding my own personal style.

I just got Jalie 2908 in the mail yesterday. Everyone at Pattern Review has been raving about this pattern. There's about 40 reviews and everyone looks like they have a great fitting pair of jeans- many of them look RTW. So I've decided to give it a try. And I may have picked the perfect time because CabinBaby at Two On Two Off is thinking about doing a sew along. She's made a few pairs from this pattern and they are very enviable.

Finding a great stretch denim is my next task. CabinBaby recommends 10.5-12 oz denim which is a heavier weight. There are some selections at Fabric.com. For my first pair, I may run over to Joanns and see if they have anything suitable.

CabinBaby has compiled some great info from a previous jeans sew along. Check out this link for more tips and resources for making a great pair of jeans.

And if you are interested in the sew along, bounce over to Two On Two Off and let her know!

Happy sewing!

  1. I made stretch corduroys using a jean's pattern, but really want to actually make a pair of stretch denim jeans, now. I'm going to have to join this sew along for sure!
