I was chuffed when my Hot Patterns Boyfriend jeans pattern arrived from USA and was dead keen to get started on the project.
- Denim prep
- Fitting nightmare
- Changes to Hot Patterns - cutting out the pockets and construction -
- Fly zip
- Better construction method than Hot Patterns
- Waistband - Hot Patterns explained
I disregarded the Hot Patterns instructions from about step 5 and moved to my own preferred construction procedure. I would like to point out that this is the way I make jeans and may not be the best, industry standard or any other recommended method available. It works for me - it might just work for you.
We may not look like this at the end of it - but at least you can say we tried!
This is my denim of choice for the project - a pin stripe blue. Should prove to be an interesting visual illusion.
