Like many new sewists, the thought of making my own pants and jeans scared the bageezus out of me and so I put it off for a very long time.
My procrastination really came to a head last year when I quite literally had no pants I could wear in public. Pants could wait no longer, so I invested the time, heart ache, and hair pulling into working out my fitting needs with my first pair of Liana Jeans from Itch to Stitch.
One year and 4 pairs of pants later, I’ve returned to my TNT jeans pattern this fall.
I’m getting into my sewing stride when it comes to pant making, so this second go around with the Lianas came together so much faster and more easily.
I have a pinterest board that I turn to for my detail inspiration, especially for pocket stitching. On this pair, I also copied the idea from my board to use the selvage edge of the denim as the top of my coin pocket.
