New Jeans: Birkin Flares

With cold weather creeping in, I knew I needed to make some new jeans ASAP.  Just my luck, Lauren of Baste and Gather was looking for testers to sew up her Birkin Flares jeans pattern.  They looked awesome on her, and I  could really use the “dead line” pressure to get some sewing done for myself, so I applied and was selected.  Yay :)

These jeans have a moderately high rise with a close fit through the hip and thigh that flares out at the bottom.  The fit and instructions are great, so be on the look out for this pattern.  It’s going through a second round of testing and will hopefully be released in a couple weeks.

As soon as time allows, I definitely want to make a couple more pairs!
