Now, don't get me wrong, I love my skinny jeans
But Boyfriend jeans are so cute!
So I decided to give the Vado Boyfriend jeans a go.
Very similar to Lekala patterns, you pop in your measurements and a pattern is created for you!
You can create an account and store your measurements on the site. That said, take the time to check them, I have obviously gained a few kilo's and my beautiful practice run are just too firm when I sit down.
Luckily, I don't think I will need to purchase another pattern, just add a few cm's to the front (where it is firm) but I am so disappointed.
That aside, they are gorgeous!
I sewed then up in some denim/wool, from Spotlight, leftover from Hugo's jeans, beautiful to sew but absolutely no stretch.
The shorts have a lovely high waist with good ease around the thigh.
The pockets are slightly smaller than the skinny jeans, obviously a design choice.
I topstitched them with navy, heavy weight thread for a dressier look.
I am hoping they will work on Zara as over sized Boyfriend shorts, maybe something a little dressier, with a nice linen shirt, for work placements?
Oh well, you win some... and you eat too much cheese.
Thank you for reading.
