I wanted the embroidery to be subtle so chose to use black rayon thread to stich the design. After all the time I spent finding and sewing the design...I decided I didn't want back pockets. I think it would give the jeans a casual look that I wasn't trying to capture. The only problem came when I was trying to remove my pockets markings. I stopped where I was and threw them in the wash. Of course now I won't be able to finish them until tommorrow. I've been having some back problems and can't sit for long.
As I am always trying to improve the fit of my garments, I tried changing the shap of the legs. My thighs rub together at the top and down a few inches. Shouldn't the patterns I sew reflect my particular fitting issues? I moved my legs over about 3/8" and could see a vast improvement over the last pair I made.
