I do like these little jeans from this Simplicity Pattern.
This pair is made from an old pair of hubby's worn out jeans. The pattern piece is quite large so I lined up the seam in the side of the jeans with the centre line of the pattern and cut the piece from both legs. I then made them up following the instructions.
I used a contrasting orange thread just like commercial jeans. I wish I'd used my twin needle as well as it makes them look very professional.
These are made in the large size so they'll be a touch too big for now.
