Last Christmas, I asked my friends what they'd each like me to make them. I may be running a little late with these gifts Tongue
One friend chose these jeans from the Sims 2 game so he could wear them normally but also use them for cosplay. I had never made jeans, men's pants, or done a zippered fly, but of course I agreed.
I used Simplicity 4760 as a starting point, but it's very heavily altered (separate waistband, wider legs, back pockets, and those stripes-which are set in not appliqued). The top stitching was a bit of a pain to do because I wasn't able to use a twin needle. I also made the orange belt, but that was super easy.

No one will ever see this, but for fun, I used fabric I tie dyed to line the pockets.

And finally, if you've played the Sims 2 you might recognize this outfit (though we modified it quite a bit)

Thanks for looking! Comments, questions, criticisms are all welcome  Smiley

Amazing details! I love putting special linings in garments; it's like a little surprise, just for the wearer. Great job!

Thanks everyone!

I love putting special linings in garments; it's like a little surprise, just for the wearer.

Exactly! I think details like interesting linings or fun phrases on the care tags in store bought clothes are an awesome touch.

I love those pants! That's exactly the style that I prefer to wear. I really dig the choice of fabric to line the pockets with. Makes the pants extra special.
