I'm Late, But They're Finished...

I originally started making my hubby's jeans way back when. See a couple posts down. I finished them not to long after that so please excuse a sista for her tardiness, okay you got me I was just plain lazy. I"ll do better. On to the review. I used KS3504. This pattern is great and the directions easy to follow. I must also give them kudos for there very simplistic sewing instructions for applying the fly front zipper. Excellent results every time. I should know I have made this pattern more than once actually.

I used a dark denim not quite indigo just a dark blue. The topstitching thread was Coats & Clark Dual Duty xp Heavy. I may try a different thread next time for a more prominent look. As you may see from the photo I stenciled a "D" on the back of the pockets. My husband loved this. I simply chose a font I liked, printed it out, and used my trusty Exacto knife to cut out the template and Viola a nice lil personal touch.

In conclusion this was a very simple, straight forward pattern to work with. It was true to sizing and a flattering fit. Not to small not to big. This has become my GTP or go to pattern for all my husband's jeans.

Until Next Time,
