Jalie jeans have become my wardrobe’s lifeblood
I think by now we can admit I have a deep-seated love for the Jalie jeans pattern. Ha ha.
This pair has been cut out for almost a year, and it took a real-life sew-a-long with a real-life friend to get me moving on them. It was great fun to begin this venture with her, although we had to part with our pants still in parts. She assures me hers were a great success, and that she’s already contemplating her next pair. These jeans are dangerous, I tell you!
I don’t have much to say about this pair. It’s a really thin denim but so far has held up quite well to repeated washing and wearing. I used topstitching thread on this pair and it made a big difference. I also like my back pocket design. I did double lines all around, but let them cross at the bottom point. I’m a big fan of simple with a twist.
My only disappointment is that the fly doesn’t lay as flat as it should. I’ve made these pants four times now, and the first two fly insertions were perfect while the last two have been less than. Am I overconfident? Over-thinking it? Over-particular? I think the next time I make these pants (you knew there was going to be a next time!), I’ll try a different method, just to see.
making faces at Gracie. I thought a rare photo that actually looks like me deserved a showing on the ol’ blog.
