More Action Jeans!
























 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::)
