More action-jeans! And this time with better pictures! I actually finished these a week ago, but am having camera issues again, so I had to wait for my lovely assistant to stop traveling around the country.
|super duper action shot!|
Like the first pair, these have a crotch-gussset (fun fact: CGs are what let Chuck Norris do round-house kicks in Walker Texas Ranger)
I'm an absolute convert - by cutting the gusset on the cross grain, it adds SO much movement to the pants.
I've yet to encounter proper pocketing, so as usual, I used random scraps from old projects for pretty pockets.
Interestingly enough, Kel really liked the festive pockets and has requested I do something similar in the hem of the next pair of pants, for unexpected pops of color. What with summer coming up, I think I might do something fun in the way of capris.
However, my very favorite part of the pants is the 8 (yes, 8!) belt loops. My belt cannot escape. Ever. (Although, little frayed bits can -- its been through the wash once already and it seems needed a bit of a trim...)
For anyone keeping track, these (and other other jeans) are both part of my massive stash bust. As of right now I am at 11! 2(jeans) + 3 (pillows - unblogged) + 1(corset) + 1(cap) + 1(watermelon sewing case)+ 1(princess slip) + 1(skirt refashion) + 1 (elf slippers) and I still have three giant tubs of fabric....
Also - Happy My Birthday! (March Fourth! ::marches forth::)
