I haven’t got a decent photo of the whole pair of jeans, much less one of me actually wearing them, but I’m so proud of the fly on this pair that I have to share photos of it, at least!
You’ll see the reason for the red belt loops in the next photo:
This is stretch denim, with a red reverse side. I couldn’t resist it when I saw it, especially at $2.500 a metre in Independencia.
This is the 4th time I have used this pattern, and each time I get the fit a little closer to perfect. I’m happy with these, but given that the denim stretches, I wish I had made them a little neater.
The pattern is a Today’s Fit by Sandra Betzina, Vogue 7608, size G, modified. I used the zip instructions from Kwik Sew. I love this zip, look at the big meaty fly shield, for one thing.
I’ve just bought a new jeans pattern, the Jalie Mid-rise Jeans, and I’m trying to decide if it will be worth the money to sign up for the “Blue Prints to Blue Jeans” class on Pattern Review. I don’t know. It’s a fair amount of cash, but what else do I have to do with myself for the rest of the year?!
