This is the same brown denim that I used for the Rachel Comey Skirt and I have used Jalie 2908 my jeans pattern that I am very pleased with the fit.
This time the only change I made was to reduce the size of the back pockets by 1cm all the way around.
The back pocket design is the same one as I used on my blue denim jeans for last year’s SWAP but this time I used Gutterman 697 Upholstery Thread and Stitch 47 in Mode 2 on my Janome MemoryCraft 5200 which I think is a triple straight stitch. You also saw here how I had initially sewed them on, this looks much better.
You may have noticed I have added a small design feature a second rivet at the top of the back pockets, well I got a bit carried away with putting the rivets on and accidently caught extra fabric in the Prym Tool and had this hole to cover.
The fabric I used for the pocket lining is left over from this bag.
Now for the rest of the details:
|Jeans button and zip|
|Coin pocket and rivets|
This completes my Everyday collection for SWAP and is my 8th piece.
Ann who has been one of the contestants for the Great British Sewing Bee, is also our co-ordinator for all our photos for the SWAP so luckily for me the SWAP deadline has been moved to 10 May as I still have 3 garments to complete.

Sharon your jeans look great, I am envious! I must really get my stuff together and start making my own well fitting jeans
Great jeans! I love the effect of the upholstery thread for your design. It really helps it to stand out. I also like that you shortened the pocket slightly. I'll have to remember to do that when I make my next pair. This is a very good pattern for a comfy pair of jeans.
Your jeans do fit you so well and look so perfect.
Those jeans are perfect! I'm jealous!
You make awesome jeans. I particularly admire your second rivet feature, very stylish ;). Your fit is terrific.
These are stunning jeans – and your fit and finish is quite superb.
A fabulous pair of jeans. Loved the way you saved it with the pockets and the extra rivets – they look great on you.
Great save, these look fantastic, as do your other SWAP garments 🙂
These look amazing!I love the \”design choice\” with the extra rivets. I probably wouldn't have noticed that it had more if you hadn't have pointed them out.Very flattering jeans.
They look fabulous Sharon. Love the rivets. Makes me think I should finish mine!
