If you want a sewing adventure.....join us!!!
I am going to work with pattern 5142 from McCall's
I am going with the slightly lower rise, straight leg. It will need some alterations because I like my jeans to ride a little high on the back waistline and a little low on the front. I want a slim thigh fit, but not skin tight and then a straight shot down. Also, my booty is like passover bread...unleavened. LOL That will be my biggest fit issue, I'm sure.
Kind of like the look of these jeans: Jalie 968 ( I really want a copy of this pattern in a plus size people!!!!)
I may also use McCall's 5894 and unsew a beat, but favorite pair of jeans for comparison.
I can't wait!! I need to prewash and dry (several times) some practice denim and some good stuff.
This is eexxcciittiinngggggggg!!
I will be posting updates here as well as the flickr group for the MPB Jeans Sew-Along.
I will surely earn my Ellie Badge for this great adventure!!!
