Snug fitting jeans Pattern Sizing:
italian 42 - 46 (I cut the 46)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
The drawing isn't that great, half of the jeans are covered by a jacket
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Marfy patterns don't come with instructions
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I didn't like that the pattern has no back pocket.
I liked that the front rise isn't too low, it ends just below the belly button
100% Cotton Denim (non-stretch)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
- added 2" length (I am 5'8")
- added back pocket
- nipped waist at the centre back about 1/2"
- changed shape of back yoke (made it less pointed)
- added 1/2" length at centre back
- made front pockets 1/2" wider
- did contour waistband with side seams, instead of centre back seam
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I love the fit and finally have a TNT jeans pattern.
I'd highly recommend this pattern to anyone looking for slim fitting jeans - it's somewhere between skinny jeans and straight legged jeans, exactly what I was looking for.
I just wish that Marfy would have been considered enough to add back pockets - I copied shape and positions of my favourite jeans' back pockets and it works well.
