The finished Anita jeansTuesday, August 18, 2009
So I'm skipping a few steps today. But since I have just finished the jeans I thought I'd show them before I continue with the remaining installations of my jeans tutorial. Can I just say that I love this pattern! Burdastyle has done exactly what I have been looking for - the perfect modern skinny jeans.
This pattern has the same qualities as the Swedish mega brands Cheap Monday and Acne, with the additional bonus that the Burdastyle jeans actually fits me! My only complaint is that they could have made the pattern even tighter, so next time I'll go down a size.
The fabric is a cotton/lycra denim with a slightly beaten surface. It's a bit too much lycra in the fabric though. Most store bought skinny jeans only has 1-1,5% lycra and that seems to be the perfect amount.
In the next tutorial I'll talk about how to make sharp looking back pockets in a quick and pain free way.
