Skinny Jalie jeans

 Following the success for my skinny cargo Jalies, I bought some stretch denim and made another pair of skinny jeans, this time without the leg pockets. This was the higher-waisted version, which help hide my muffin-top!

The fit is better this time as I traced the pattern to fit my hip measurement (size S) and blended it into my waist measurement (size U) above the hip. I did this on any pattern pieces (pockets etc.) that went above the hip. This seemed to work well and I will do it again next time I make these.

This second pair went together much faster than the first pair I made and I gave a little more attention to detail with the fly, which was definitely worthwhile - at least Truffle seems to think so.
