You can't go back to uncomfortable ones.
I can't find jeans to fit me.
I have a very thick waist but it is tummy weight. If I get jeans to fit me in the waist, they have ridiculously full legs.
If they are neat around the bottom and legs, they cut me in my middle.
But jeans and shirts are my style, I like them!
|Style Arc Boyfriend shirt and Vado skinny jeans|
Life it too short for tight trousers.
My weight gain is mainly on my middle so I added a few cms to the front of the jeans and the waistband of my original pattern and I was back in business.
I used some denim/wool from Spotlight, it has a small amount of stretch which is needed for this pattern.
I went with navy top stitching.
As usual I interfaced the front panels for some tummy control (personal choice) and I used stretch poplin of the pockets bags which I finished with French seams.
I love that I actually have some bum as well as tum in these jeans.
Skinny jeans are great but I wanted to try a different look.
So I thought I would try the Vado Boyfriend jeans again
The pattern has more ease through the leg, not sloppy, just a little more fabric.
Once again, tummy room, love it!
I love these jeans!
I got a booty!
My only tiny grumble....
They are supposed to have long legs, like really long legs that you roll up!
I don't have long legs and these are almost too short on me.
So I will need to add a few inches to my next pair
Because I really like the look of the rolled leg.
More lush denim/wool but this time with copper coloured thread topstitching.
I am so pleased with these jeans.
Thank you for reading... xx N
