I’ve just spent a week documenting the construction of these 1950s style jeans in my Stories. Who knew I had 35 minutes of video time in me to talk jeans making?! Just kidding I TOTALLY knew. I love talking about sewing jeans. 😂
If you’d like to follow after the fact, I’ve collated all of the Stories in 3 highlights collections on my profile (see last pic), so you can access them at any time!
These jeans will probably make it onto my blog soon, but the quick dirt for those who didn’t follow: • Cone Mills denim from @threadbarefabrics
• Cath Kidston waistband facing fabric from eBay
• pattern backwards architected myself, from a plain vintage trouser pattern (allll the details on that hidden zipper are in the videos)
• best overall resource for getting into jean making is @closetcase.patterns ”Sewing Your Own Jeans: a Step by Step eBook”
It was so fun to share this project in such depth, and all the comments and conversations I had along the way really made it worthwhile! Thank you so much. I love sewing jeans and I love sharing and I love you, too. 😘
