I decided to try my hands on jeans and button-up. Just like any first time tries, you'd find yourself making a bunch of mistakes. Like, stay stitching the side seams of the jeans when I wasn't done with the fit just yet. Or not paying attention which side the cuff placket goes to so they're not inside out. Overall, I like how they turned out. I definitely know what to look out for in the future construction wise. (Note to self, never use top stitching thread with linen.) Both garments' patterns were drafted out of scratch.

About the yellow buttons; I have those pins with the yellow flower plastic heads and when I pinned them shut for fitting, I liked how they looked on brown so I chose to use the same color. haha As for the jeans, I don't like to wear mine below my hips so I made a slightly higher waisted one with a equestrian-esque feel to it.

I also made this shirt a couple of days ago out of boredom. I'm not too happy with it, but it'll do.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

You're designs are so modernly stylish!

I love the cut of that shirt you're not sure about...& it looks great with the layered blue shirt beneath!. Those skinny jeans are great paired with the button shirt...but would look good with the other one as well!

 I love the little detail of the yellow buttons for added color on the button up shirt!

So very rare to see men making their own clothes....and these are worth the wait!
You did a great job on those jeans, esp for your first shot! My first pair of jeans were about 4 sizes to big for me, and shapeless as hell!
I couldn't tell that button-down was made, though; great craftsmanship! The yellow buttons are too cute! I think they add a little something to the shirt and really make it pop!

Your "boredom" shirt - like I Sew Cute said, it's actually a rather nice cut, and looks great layered Smiley

Very nice job!  Much nicer than anything I have done as a beginner.  I really like the top layered as seen in the second picture.  The jeans fit you perfectly!

Excellent work on all three.  I can't see any flaws, wierd bunching or anything, so don't beat yourself up about the second shirt.  Sometimes the idea is way better in your head than fabric will allow it to be!   I do agree that it does look good layered with the blue shirt, but that could the fact that you seem to be standing more like you like it in that photo.  Cheesy  The jeans and shirt are great, they look very professionally made and well thought out.  Great work!!

you did a wonderful job! very impressive especially since both items are pretty complicated projects. it's all very neat and well finished. and i really like that wrap t-shirt too Cheesy it's so rare to see a boy sewing, where did you pick it up? are you a fashion student or?

keep on making great stuff!

i'd rather be sewing.
