Me Made Monday (28 Jan)

Today I wore New Look 6648 (top) and my fifth pair of Jalie 2908 (jeans).  I'm cheating with the picture because I'm too tired to take a photo now.  It's been a long day.


I call these my GAP jeans.  Kimora Lee Simmons has Baby Phat.  I have Grown-@ss Phat.  Hah!

    1. I am the first to loudly declare that making jeans is not hard at all! If you've ever made a pair of fly-front trousers, you can definitely make a pair of jeans. The only difference between jeans and trousers is a couple of extra seams and a closer fit. That's it! I've made eight pairs so far and will probably never buy another pair again.

  2. Great outfit! I'm looking forward to trying to make a pair of jeans. I haven't tried Jalie...I'll be checking them out.

    1. Thanks! The Jalie pattern is fantastic. The fit is great and the instructions are extremely clear. I have a couple of other jeans patterns but I've never tried them. Why do all that work when I have a pair that already fits? Maybe we can add a jeans sew along to the mix!

  3. Lmbo @ grown-@ss Phat. I can't wait to make some jeans. I have a tiny waist and big old booty and I have SERIOUS fitting issues when it comes to bottoms. You look great and I love the fabric for the top.

  4. This is why I sew! I am 5 feet tall and have a trunk full of junk. I can't stand for the back of my pants/jeans to not cover all when I sit. At the rink where I skate, I (unfortunately) see this all of the time. It is *not* cute. By sewing my own jeans, I can make them right length for me as well as make sure they provide necessary coverage. =)

  5. I didn't do MMM, but I'm planning to do Me Made Wednesday (provided the weather is nice enough for a skirt). LOL! I promise myself that I will try to make a shirt in February.
