I’ve been a bit lax in my pretty pattern posts!
Today’s pattern is a recent acquisition. While I don’t know if it necessarily meets the criteria of “pretty.” I thought I would showcase it for its uniqueness. Something I’ve been wanting to make for a while is a pair of 40s era jeans. I wasn’t sure what pattern to use to make my jeans. Many of the vintage ones I found that I thought would do the trick were too, too small in the waist. Behold:
And just look at that waist measurement- 32″ wow! Practically unheard of! I’m excited because I think that would be pretty easy to whittle down for me. Much easier than whittling up from a 24″ waist.
Note the adorable shaped pockets. I’ve not seen a detail like this before and I’m not sure if it’s something I’ll use when I actually do make these up. For now, I’m prowling my local fabric store for a good stiff, dark denim.
Enjoy your Sunday! Today I’ll be finishing the last of my Christmas knitting projects (hip-hip-hooray!!) and can get back to knitting for ME.
