I love making jeans! Jalie 2908 #6!

Of all of the things I sew, I love jeans the most!  I know that every time I reach for a pair of me-made jeans, they will fit, they won't be too long, they won't stretch out over the course of the day and (I'll say it again) they fit!!!

Here is my 6th pair of Jalie 2908:

I bought the fabric last August from Harts Fabric.  It was the first and only time I saw a fabric on someone else's blog and absolutely HAD to buy some.  Katie over at The Creative Counselor, made a pair of Jedidiah Pants for her husband using this fabric.  It is a recycled hemp and organic cotton blend (found here) and I fell for it hard! 

There is no horizontal stretch in the fabric so I knew I needed to give myself more room through the hip and thigh.  I added 1/2" to the sides of the front and back pattern pieces.  Other than that, no changes other than the ones I have done in the past. 

Here are my previous pairs:

And the links:

1st version: dark denim 3% lycra
2nd: brown denim 0% lycra
3rd: medium denim 2% lycra (I strangely have no photos of these)
4th: beige denim 2% lycra (my favorites!!)
5th: Red stretch twill shorts


  1. They all look lovely and a great fit. You obviously have the holy grail - a pattern that fits and you love- I'm still at the jeans scare me stage

  2. Nice! I am working on jeans right now, and I am getting over my fear of them. Well, I am trying to get over my fear of pants in general!!! It is awesome that you have a TNT. I hope to be there myself one day soon.


I love your comments and I read every single one!
