So I went into Octane with Em the other day. My jeans look just as good as their jeans do. Em suggested that I skinny the jeans up a bit and leave them long. I have also been experimenting with chunky topstitching.
Making skinny jeans was easier than I thought. I did all of the alterations on the outer leg seam. I found the point on the thigh where the jeans couldn’t be taken in and measured how wide I wanted the rest of the leg. I used an existing pair of jeans as a template but this could easily be accomplished with a hip curve.
