It's hard to find nice fitting denim...and the sizing and style of ready-made jeans seem to shrink every year from skinny to skin tight (I'm going to ignore the other obvious possibility for now).
I used Butterick 5682 view A (Slim Ankle Length). I wanted to make them longer but a little more than 1 yard was all I had...
Right now I'm debating if I should dye the pants with grey dye to tone down the color... for now I'm going to see if I warm up to it first...
