Floral Denim

Floral Denim
 
 
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 saw this pretty floral print at a local second-hand sewing supply store for $5 and decided to finally make my own pair of jeans! :)

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...

      I'd been looking for floral jeans but couldn't find anything that fit me... so I had to make these when I found the perfect fabric! :)
