|Come with me if you want to live!!!|
Last night I tore my jeans right before going out. I duly duct taped the hole, but this clearly wasn't a long term solution. So rather than patching it, I decided to make a new pair. (Obviously the most efficient solution.) I'd cut them out a while ago and had never gotten around to sewing them up... So I can't claim a start to finish in one day, but eh. I'm still pretty entertained.
I followed Peter's jeans sew-along which I found quite clear, although in a few places my pattern (traced off a RTW) didn't match his, such as having a separate fly. However, I think it really sped the whole thing up quite a bit.
This was also the first time I flat-felled anything, and although it was a little wonky the first time around, I decided to just go with it ... until I noticed I'd sewed the yoke on backwards. So.... yay for practice! 'Cause I got lots!

The gods of photography were not smiling upon me this evening, so proper photos when I see sunlight. Even odds on managing that one within the week. Stupid winter.
