Jeans for Sasha and Gregor!

I was asked by one of my lovely 'customers' if I would make some jeans for her Sasha, so last week I drew up a pattern and then I made the jeans.  I thought the first pair would be a 'prototype' because when making new patterns there's always a bit of tweeking that has to be done to the pattern.  However, they came out a really great fit and I was delighted that I didn't have to make another pair immediately!  Of course my own girls weren't overly impressed because usually, they get the 'prototypes' which in my opinion aren't good enough to sell to someone else!  Ooops!  I guess I know what I'll be doing come the autumn then!

So here they are.  These are made from prewashed denim with a small lycra content, they have four working pockets, contrasting top stitching, front fly opening (closes with two small metal snaps), back yoke, leather label on the waistband and red 'tag' on one the back pocket.  They are then finished with metal 'rivets' like regular human jeans are!  These deliberately do not have belt loops at the request of the buyer.

Thanks for looking!  I hope you all have a lovely week ahead!

  1. That are 'The Bees knees!' just perfect Sharon, Love the colour and the detail. They look nice and slim at the waist which is good if you don't want any bulges! Now she just needs one of your bright snazzy t shirts and she's ready for action!

    1. Thanks very much Dee, glad you like them!
      Yes, they're slim at the waist, you could probably have a 'body' or all in one under them but they'd be hard to tuck something into I think.

  2. I think they are brilliant! But all your own kids deserve a pair, so you could be very busy this year.

    1. THanks very much Ginger, I really quite enjoy making jeans, but this size is new for me :) I think they are the biggest I've ever made maybe?

  7. Hello, I just found your blog and love it! The jeans are just perfect in every way. Do you think you will ever make a pattern to purchase? I know my boys would love a pair for sure. Again, what a great blog.

    Thank you, Janet
