A couple of weeks ago my fashion photographer and I headed to Quebec for our annual trip to catch up with friends and family. We spent a day in Montreal playing tourist and meeting up with friends. I wore my most recent Jalie Eleonore jeans.
I blogged about this pattern a few months ago. This pair is made with a stretch twill from Britex Fabrics in San Francisco. I sewed a size R but used the length from size S. I also used 1.5″ elastic for the waist. I used this width of elastic for my previous pairs and will continue to do so for future pairs.
There’s not much to say about this wonderful pattern that has not been said by other sewists. It is a quick project that yields great results. All three pictures above are taken in the sculpture garden outside of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
The fake fly and front pockets are not obvious in this print. I like the back patch pockets. They give the illusion of “real” jeans.
