Don't mind me I'm just over here mastering my dream 50s jeans. 😍💪💃✂️
Details: these are based on the same vintage trouser pattern I used for my tropical capris (yesterday's photo and blog post), with some changes to accommodate (non-stretch) denim and vintage jeans styling (and big enough back pockets for my cell phone!). I also reverse engineered the hidden zipper for jeans with slant front pockets and pocket topstitching like many 40s/50s women's jeans and now feel like a total badass. 💁🏼
Basically these are my dream jeans (well jeanie pedal pushers for summer!) and I AM SO EXCITED I COULD POP. But I won't because then I wouldn't be able to finish and wear these. 😜
I love repro jeans but now I can make them perfectly fit my proportions and in any style (hello Western belt loops, I'll be seeing you this fall!) and any denim, and any leg width, and that feels like a million bucks.
And yes, I plan to do a tutorial on the pocket and if there's enough interest, maybe taking a favorite trouser pattern and turning it into 1940s or 1950s inspired jeans...? Let me know in the comments!
