1940s Jeans (EvaDress/Simplicity 3322)

July 5, 2015

I freakin’ love these jeans, and I love how versatile the EvaDress Wide Leg Trouser pattern is!

It might be hard to believe, but these jeans started life as very wide legged swing trousers, from EvaDress 3322.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fabric was a medium weight denim (not as heavy as rigid denim), and I used a beige top-stitch thread instead of golden-yellow.

I also made a top of modifications, including:

  • Raising the crotch depth about half an inch (they were a fraction too low last time I used this pattern)
  • Narrowing the legs and hips a bit more
  • Removing the front waist dart (tutorial coming to my blog very soon)
  • Adding the slant pockets
  • Add belt carriers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Result = Freddies of Pinewood eat your heart out! Super comfy and I need more pairs of these in my life right now!
