Burdastyle 3/2014 # : Not Another Pair of Skinny Jeans!

Don’t hold your breath, nothing new to see here – just another pair of my TNT skinny jeans, Burdastyle 3/14 #104:IMG_0783

I don’t really have anything to say that I haven’t said before, but I bet you are relieved that these sport a less questionable pattern than the last version before these.





Avid stash busters will be pleased to hear that this fabric came from the midth of my stash and I’m still on track with my miny stash diet with less than 4 weeks to go, two of which I’ll be away on holiday.

And just to prove to my reader Mia (so there, this is not gratuitous bottom photography 😉 ): No VPL in sight!




So I’ll leave you with what I believe to be my “professional model pose”IMG_0789

It’s as well they keep me on at the school, don’t you think?

This is likely to be the last post before my holiday, so let me wish you all a happy Easter well in advance! And who knows, I might even be able to convince the Gods of Mobile Internet to upload a picture of the Amalfi dress once it is in its natural habitat. 🙂

    Another corker in this pattern. And I’m so proud you didn’t VPL pose again… and even more proud that you are keeping up the good work on sewing from your stash. Any change of a two week extension to account for holiday time?!

      Wow, Emma Jayne, you are a hard task-mistress! I’m afraid to say there will be no extension, as the end of the stash diet coincides with fabric market day – which is simply unmissable. But I promise to be good afterwards 🙂

    Looking good, tho not as daring as the patterned ones!
    Love your label on the pocket, very professional 😃

      Thank you! Yes, no pocket surgery required this time!

    Chris, I had to laugh while reading your blogpost. I already seem to be a recurring element across your posts :). No VPL? Lovely! Still the first version of your thong? https://handmadebychris.wordpress.com/2014/05/31/fehr-trade-lacy-thong-no-pun-intended/

    Overall: very charming outfit – Love it and cutting a good figure! Perfect work up to small details like the pocket label. 5 Stars here, too.

      Yes Mia, you have become my underwear-conscience. I do think “What would Mia say?” when choosing my underpants in the morning!

    Well done indeed. Model pose is pretty good. But you know us sewists detest such poses. We want to see garment details! Stick with normal programming please!
    Enjoy your break.

  5. Nice you have a TNT jeans pattern. Make as many as you like! Have a lovely holiday!

    Stick with a good thing, I say! Your jeans are a great fit and very rtw looking.

  9. […] jeans in those photos are my latest iteration of Burdastyle 3/14 #115, which I did again here and here and there are a few unblogged versions. I think I got the front crotch area as right as I […]

  10. […] #115. It’s my go to skinny jeans pattern and I lost count of the versions I made. Here, here, here and here is a little bit of evidence. But in fact the one pair of jeans that I wear most often […]
