vogue 2925 – denim trousers

in 1970s

i’ve been looking for a pair of trousers like this for a few months now, with no luck. after winning this pattern in a giveaway, i decided to just up & make my own :)

i used vogue 2925, making them up with denim instead of the suggested suiting fabrics. there is minimal top stitching – i didn’t want to make these actual jeans, more like sleek denim trousers. the seams are mock flat-felled and the waistband is faced with cotton. i made very few fitting changes to these – took about 1″ out of the crotch length, 2″ off the leg width, and eliminated the cuffs.

i still have some fitting adjustments to do with my next pair – there are smile wrinkles (ew) and they could benefit from a small full butt adjustment. next time, i would like to make these in denim with a tiny bit of stretch – the denim i used is very stiff and thick, and a little bit of “give” would be nice.

at any rate, i’m very pleased with my pants and i think i will get a lot of wear out of them! what do you think?

Adorable. Love this style. Stretchier denim would probably be more comfortable considering the height of the waist.

Apologies that you weren’t able to publish this immediately – apparently I hadn’t bumped you up to the correct permissions after your first post. All fixed now, so you shouldn’t experience any delay in the future.

You did a very good job, I have never done a pair of trouser ever, I have started but then I do them very bad :(
And I also think in strech denim you will have a better result
