More Jeans for Mummy.

I was a bit flat after the shirt debacle
So I made some more jeans
My custom fit Vado jeans.
In super stretchy, denim/wool from Spotlight, $16/m.
(Good and wide, I got a pair of jeans and a pair of long shorts from 2m)
I am so happy with these jeans.
I fitted the side seams before the final sew, always worth doing as different types of denim have different fits, apart from that I just sewed them up!
White, jeans top stitching thread makes a big difference in the finish.
I love the tummy room this pattern gives me.
But the fit at the back make me very happy.
On our hol's in Bendigo, I picked up this gorgeous wide leather plaited belt.
I made some long shorts with extra wide belt loops, to fit.
I used copper topstitching for a more casual look.

~My Verdict~
Perfect.
I have nailed this pattern. I will make one more pair in a heavy denim and that is my jeans well and truly sorted.
I am so happy with my capsule wardrobe, so far. Getting dressed is easy, I always feel smart, everything is worn regularly and I am getting a good feel for my style.
I have no doubt others could get bored but I am so busy I love it!
Getting dressed in the morning is enjoyable and very very quick!

  2. Those look fabulous. I've never had a pair of jeans without a gap at my back waistband so I know how rare and special it is to get a good fit. Well done and congrats for finding the perfect jeans!

    1. I always have the gap at the back, bunches up with a belt and is bloody uncomfortable.
      Thank you, it was worth it all now as I live in jeans.

  3. Eek I'm running out of time this year to make capris/pants, maybe I'll find time after October. Yours look awesome!

  4. The length was a happy accident but the capri think is quite flattering. You would rock them with your tiny waist.
    Thank you!

  6. You're looking fine lady! And your jeans sewing is always so impressive... sewing jeans is one of those things I'm far too terrified to even try... you make it look so easy- which is no mean feat!

    1. Seriously, this pattern makes it so much easier. If you wear jeans regularly (and I do) I really recommend giving them a go.
      Thank you.

  10. Seriously great Nicole! Your verdict pretty well sums it up really. I have some serious jeans fit envy going on (let alone sewing envy)!

    1. I hope I didn't sound like I was boasting? I am just so truly happy with these. I have always struggled with jeans, so happy to have some that work.
      Thank you!

    2. No! I didn't hear boasting at all. Rather a goodly and honest appraisal. 'Perfect' & 'nailed it' is exactly right for both your work & the pattern. Go boldly Ma'am! ;)

    I love the belt, even more as it was $2 from the op shop.
