I finished these pants about two weeks ago, and I’ve worn them almost everyday since. I love how they look. I love how the breeze goes right through them on a hot day. They keep me clean when I have rats on my lap at work. They’re a bit more reasonable than my other summer pants, but they still have the wide leg and high waist I like so much. So every morning I try to find something else to wear, but I end up putting on these jeans again. Time to make another pair.
This is the first pair of jeans I’ve ever made, and it was quite a project. I skipped the front pockets, but even so there were a lot of details to figure out, and a ton of top stitching. It was slow and involved a lot of ripping things out and starting over again. But now I have a better idea what I’m doing, so I’m working on another pair, this time with all five pockets, and taking pictures of the process. Instructions for some of the trickier steps are on their way.
