I haven’t blogged for a while, but I have definitely been sewing. These are my new denim pants made from the Colette juniper pants pattern. I took a chance and made them without a muslin and they fit… Yay. The denim is a mid weight denim from Lincraft.
Rest assured the front crotch wrinkles are from sitting down to have breakfast in these pants, the denim seems to crease quite easily.
The only changes I made was to take a little fullness out of the legs from the thigh down. When I make them again I will add a smidgen to the waistband.
I highly recommend this pattern, I got lots of comments wearing these at work yesterday.
The title of this post “husbands are the hidden victims of sewing” was what my husband said to me on Sunday when I got him to pin the hem up. Does your partner hate getting roped into these sewing tasks as much as mine?
These are not the only pants I have made lately. A month or so ago I made the Sewaholic Thurlow pants, I also love this pattern, and though I muslined them, they were pretty good straight from the pattern. Hopefully I’ll have pictures for you soon. I’m also working on a pants muslin for some “fitted Clover” style pants with Steph, which is going very well.
