I am claiming amnesty on both January and May with this bloke and his fence. Enjoy, Nicki.
Lean Green Summer Jeans
Pattern: Jedediah Pants by Thread Theory, size 32
Fabric: Stretch Green Denim from Deep Stash, originally a coupon bought in Paris
Green Notes: I bought this denim well before I thought much about the provenance of my cloth. It does seem to be of a great quality, my sons pair of jeans in the same fabric has lasted 3 years of hard wear and still looks good.
See Also: My previous makes here and here
Tidbits: I had only a few hours to make these so took advantage of my new overlocker to cut down the sewing time. I overlocked the seams and faux felled the inseam and yoke. I also cut the waistband and belt loops on the selvedge so i did not have to finish those edges.
The back pocket design was drawn up by super bloke at my request.
Lessons: This is the fourth time I have sewn this pattern and there has been a decent gap since the last pair. In that time, I really feel like I my skills have improved dramatically as this pair came together so easily and smoothly. Super bloke has lost a little muscle mass since I made my fitting adjustments but I decided to keep a bit of roominess in these as he is back to exercising more and I didn’t want those quads busting out again.
Score: 4.5/5 (he likes to give me some room for improvement)
It’s always nice to see somebody sewing for men. Great fabric, lovely details. Nice T-shirt too: The heart matching beautiful with the pants.
Thank you. I do love the heart shirt, I think I need to make another version!
They look amazing, really well done and a great colour!
Thank you. The colour is unusual isn’t it.
Yes the colour is really unique, I wouldn’t mind a pair for myself hehe!
Well, there is a chunk left, how much would you need? Its super wide (150cm)
That’s very nice of you, but I’m too far away and I’m sure you will make something amazing with it! But thank you for the offer! xx
Wow, these are impressive! Love the fabric colour, it’s quite different and looks great. 🙂 (Also, that back pocket detail – fantastic!)
