Dodgy photo alert! I finished two and a half items over the long weekend, but I'm not sharing any of them today!
These Ginger jeans and Jalie 3245 top were made over my unintended blogging break. Unfortunately my camera isn't working at the moment so I'm reduced to iPhone photos and you can't really see the details.
The Ginger jeans are almost exactly the same as last time but with a half inch adjustment for excess fabric under the butt and pull lines explained in this post. I also slimmed the calves down even more to make these a truly skinny jean.
The fabric is a really stretchy Ralph Lauren over dyed denim bought from Emma One Sock earlier this year. It's beautiful and the fabric was lovely to work with. I also used standard thread this time - my machine just doesn't like top stitching thread.
Two nice new basics for the wardrobe. Love the colour of the top and the shaped hem, but think I could have gone down a size. I also love that I have jeans that are comfortable and long! Oh the joys of sewing.
I love the feeling of the high waist but I'm not sure I like the way they look when you can see it through a top (like in the photos above). I'm also not sure I have the right body shape for the high waist look, so I think I'll try the lower rise at some point in the future.
