The back is made from a piece of curtaining fabric that came as part of a sample pack. I picked it up from Remida, the creative reuse centre in Perth. The front and sleeves are made from a scrap of black knit fabric that I had to join together to get a piece large enough to use. I think the seam makes quite a nice feature at the front.
The second modification was to change the front hemline slightly so it has a more gentle upward curve. I am pleased with this subtle change.
The jeans are made according to the pattern with extra length added to the hems. I used a pinstriped fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics. It is fairly light for a denim and has only slight stretch. This is a great fabric for this pattern and I'm pleased with the fit this time.
The front. Not much to say apart from using red thread for the bar tacks in the hope of a ready-to-wear look.
I've already worn both of these items several times. They are comfortable and practical, so perfect for my wardrobe.
