An emergency phone call from the handy man.
his jeans were too toight.
So I made him another pair.
Hugo's tried and true Kwik Sew jeans
It is very handy to have a pattern I can sew up, without fitting.
I altered the pattern previously, lowering the waist and pinching out some hip fullness but leaving the ease through the legs.
I added back pocket flaps and double back belt carriers.
The fabric is super stretchy denim/wool from Spotlight.

Since starting my studies at university I have had the opportunity to wear my nice, smart Eglington clothes more often.
My jeans in particular have had a good work out, to the extent that I had entirely worn out the backside in a pair.
I guess I can now officially be called a 'shiny bum'.
Luckily, Mum came to the rescue and I went from one pair of 'good' jeans to a repaired pair and a new pair very promptly.
My new jeans are the same design which are super comfortable and smart.
The stretch denim fabric has a lot of give which is good for me to tackle the trek up and down the hills at Flinders.
I guess I am saying I really like my new jeans and hope I don;t wear the backside out of the too soon.
As do I, Beamish, as do I...
