my daughter-24 would like me to make her some jeans in this style. i've looked at pictures--they have shaping seams in different places. i don't even know if i could copy a pair. any patterns out there? i've searched the web, but have had no luck. there has to be a pattern that the manufacturer uses. south american pattern companies? thanks!

Look here for a discussion talking about them. I think the style is of them is additional darts for shaping the bottom. Someone posted a video link.

The ones I've seen are almost bikini low in the front and actually higher in the back. I think a lot iof just the visual effect s just the more curved back waist yoke though as that is going back to sort of the old 1970's and then ressurected a few years ago, "dittos" kind of back yoke look. I have not seen any current sewing patterns like that, but a whole bunch of old 1970's kind of ones had that kind of more rounded back yoke. So if you look on ebay or estsy you could probably find some more 1970's ones with yokes and shapes more like that. And then maybe just make them more stovepipes leg wise if you wanted to.

I do think the two sided butt look, is better than the smashed together uni-butt look though, just that bikini low jeans in the front with it, I'm not so sure about?

Whoa! Here is an illustration of the basic concept. The idea seems to be extremely low-cut, much tighter and waaaaay more butt-centric than what older sewists might be familiar with. I have never seen such a pattern here, but no doubt a tight low-cut jeans pattern, like Jalie's, could serve very well. I have not seen really unusual darts on any of the many photos illustrating these jeans, but I think I have spotted a lot of 16-year-old behinds, plus quite a few butt lifts and implants!

I suspect the design of these pants is related to Brazilian preferences in feminine beauty. For quite a few decades, the ideal figure there had a small bosom, small waist, and a large but perky backside. For ladies who were not born with this shape but felt an acute lack of beauty--and this society values beauty in a remarkable way--a plastic surgeon named Dr. Ivo Pinanguy invented probably the first modern butt lift (I am not making this up). He was/is a real doctor with good technique and is very serious about believing in a strong link between good looks and personal happiness.

Here is an article describing the whole business a little more, noting the great popularity of plastic surgery in Brazil.

Anyhow, success with these somewhat pornographic jeans depends on denim with a high elastic quotient, a nice, well-toned but full backside, and not much shyness.

There is also more the Brazil Roxx brand of jeans (advertised more in all the Western Living magazines often) that are not so extreme in style, but still very close fitting and very embellished, with all sorts of elaborate embroidery, nail heads, studs and such.

http://www.brazilroxx.com/

If someone's an "over embelisher" and you got an embroidery machine and or you like to applique, and apply trims and such, studs and nail heads, you could really go to town there. Still form fitting but not so extreme. Also would be about at least $250 dollars less expensive to make than buy

hi ladies--i went back to the old post--read the blog and watched the video. i think that both the post created more questions than answers. i might just start shopping thrift stores to locate a pair of used jeans to study...or replicate. i've purchased the kenneth cole class on craftsy to do this. i find it hard to believe that there are no patterns from brazil or columbia to be purchased--as a starting point. perhaps one of the independent patterns companies should consider this. seems like there would be a lot of interest in a pattern of this type. i talk to my daughter about what she wanted in the shape--she's curvy and happy with that--no uniboob and no unibutt! thanks for all the info. i appreciate it.
