You’d think I’d be done with this pattern!!!
Just to recap…. Here’s 1, 2 and 3. These are in weekly or almost weekly work rotation.
I had this awesome fabric from Needle Nook, in a gorgeous colors. I cut out another version just like the last three, but then while working on I decided to leave the sleeves off for the cap sleeve version. I LOVE it!!!! I thought I’d be done with this version after this one, but I think there will be more!
A week or two ago, Hot Patterns had a Sew Something Saturday event on their facebook page. I enjoy the camaraderie on the page and wanted to participate. I really needed a pair of smart pants for work on Fridays. I live in Wichita, KS, and seriously, my jean options are cowgirl pocket bling…or skinny jeans. I’m not a fan of either. I looked through my patterns and decided that the denim divas were perfect. It’s an old school HP and I made two pairs ages ago. My skills have vastly improved since then, so I decided to try it. The only change I’ll make to the next pair is to add another inch on center back. I think I have about three inches added already. My favorite things about these jeans is the front pockets….they’re easy to do, and I much prefer them to the slant style. I stole a contoured waistband from a Kwik Sew pattern because it just came with a straight one as packaged. I know that a contoured one works much better for my curves. Here’s the pattern and finished product.
The HotPatterns love continues. I think a version of this one is up next!
