Vogue 1034 - finished finally

These jeans are my day to evening version.  They have NO pockets, because I didn't want any bulk anywhere.  They are nice and long, and I can wear them with all those super high heels in my shoe wardrobe.
Really, I have two RTW jeans that I wear with flats or sneakers, I was missing this version, a nice dark wash high heel dressy version.  Without all of the other details it also allowed me to concentrate on fit.

Finished jean front

Here's a WIP shot of the inside yoke.  Even though there are no pockets, I popped in one layer of the pocket lining to control the stretch of the front fabric, giving it a better line.  You can also see all of the seam allowance markings before I settled on the final width.

Inside WIP

I had fun with these, with the calico inside (my little secret), and the Dritz jean button.

You look slim in these jeans, which is my gold standard for jeans! I am so impressed with people who successfully sew jeans. It seems like such a daunting task.

Great fit! The calico secret is a great touch. I like making seemingly simple garments with a special lining. Also, a good reason to wear really special undergarments, your own little secret!

These are my first pair of jeans, I think starting without pockets was a good idea. I also think that I should have bought enough of the same fabric to make 2, so that I don't have to fiddle with adjustments on the next pair. This fabric was very stretchy, the other stretch in the stash is not. This was the spongy variety of denim, so it is also pretty thick.

You got a fantastic fit! They look so great on you. I love the idea of doing a first pair of jeans without pockets. I may try that.
