Syo would like you to know that she’s far, far, too cool to be posing in her new jeans for her mom.
They are a little big. Not really satisfyingly skinny.
Syo’s mother would like you to know that Syo is going to have to deal, I am so totally done with making clothes that are outgrown a month later.
Now that that’s out of the way, a few final details:
The pockets look good. I like my feature pocket.
The waistband is flabby as I didn’t bother to interface (and it’s cut on the cross, i.e. stretchy). However, there are now studs. I bought plain “Bachelor buttons” rather than jeans buttons this time, because I didn’t really feel like spending $8 for 8 buttons when I could buy four bachelor buttons for less than two. The bachelor buttons may be slightly wimpier than the (already flimsy) Dritz jeans buttons, but not too much. Someday when the perfect conjunction of money and motivation coincides, I will order some proper ones off the internets. Until then, my children will suffer. Syo wanted a snap anyway, but didn’t mention this until after the buttonhole was cut.
She really likes the fuzzy pocket-lining fabric. I’m thinking I should make a future pair lined in something similar… extra warm and extra cozy all in one.
That gathered look has been achieved.
There are, however, few things cuter than a pug. Even a stuffed pug.
Also, I got the most awesome package in the mail today.
Yes, it’s that awesome 70s coat pattern Zoe made up last year and then recently decided to give away. I feel totally honoured and squee-tastic that she picked me (not to mention a little apprehensive. What if I stuff it up?). I am so excited. I’ve never made a Vogue pattern before. Bet you can’t guess which view I want to make.
So I guess I know what my next project is. Aside from the pair of ruched jeans I’ve already cut out for Tyo, anyway.
