Ok, not really magic, but that caught your attention.
Designed and made for my Drafting and Sewing II class. Everything is drafted and sewn by me. I'm not a true standard size 8 so it doesn't fit me perfectly, so just bear with me Tongue





The prototype was a hot mess (see below). The waist was originally extended 5 cm and the front did not have a yoke. There were also tons of fit issues, which I think magically ironed themselves out when I traced out the final pattern. The different thickness in denim might've also helped (the final is heavier).



Anyway, I'm quite pleased with it. I wish I was able to find thick-ish denim with at least a little bit of spandex, as these do not have stretch at all. I think the topstitching could be a little better (sometimes industrial machines do, in fact, fail) and the back and front crotch seams don't totally match up. I guess I'll find out how I really did when I hand it in on Thursday! :|

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

those look great! high-waisted pants and skirts have really come back into style. Your topstitching is beautiful... you said it could be better, but look closely at mass produced jeans and you'll notice that thier topstitching isn't always as perfect as it could or should be. great work!

So so flattering!
I hope you wear them often, they are too beautiful to sit in a closet.
