I hate scratchy, stiff blue jeans. Who sells some soft denim that is a really deep blue in color? Awhile back I made some jeans with elastic out of a really lightweight, soft denim that I purchased from Joann's but I'd like something heavier to take me into cooler weather. Their heavier seems so stiff and scratchy and I read where some had a chemical smell after washing. -- Edited on 5/9/13 12:31 PM --

Have you tried washing the stuff denim with a can of Coke poured into the wash? I've done it with Coke Zero and it has soften denim. If its really stiff I let it soak in the soda for a while then wash it. I have a top loading washer.

I posted here that a denim had a terrible chemical smell after I washed it. It didn't smell so bad at JoAnn's, but I went back and now that I knew what to look for, I detected a slight odor from the bolt. (my nose is rather sensitive to chemicals as well as other odors and perfumes) For some reason, the washing really amplified the odor. -- Edited on 5/10/13 9:24 AM --
