Print jeans have been popping up everywhere lately, so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon. I’ve had this print denim for a while. After my epic quilt project, I feel like my fabric shelves are much more manageable. Like I can actually see what I have. Anyway, this denim is kind of neat. The print is on what would normally be considered the wrong side of the denim. The opposite side is solid indigo blue.
The pattern for the jeans is Burdastyle 6/07 104, altered. This is the third time I’ve made this pattern. It’s a nice skinny trouser. I left the jeans a bit long so they bunch up a bit around the ankles. Maybe if I can get to the city sometime soon I’ll get rivets put on them. Wouldn’t that be swank?
The top is Vogue 1247 made up in silk velvet. The seams came out a bit puckered, but I think I like it anyway. The pattern calls for French seams, which did not seem like a good idea on a fabric with this much loft. I did a Hong Kong finish instead.
