I've just finished a pair of jeans.. Ginger Jeans by Closet Case Patterns to be precise. I've made View A (mid rise stove pipe) in the organic stretch denim I have in the store. I'm pretty happy with the end result, but it's not to say there aren't things to improve next time.
The most time consuming part for me was getting the fit right - this is always a bit of a challenge as I vary so much across sizes, and sometimes I just want to give up and sew! But perseverance is rewarded - I am really happy with how these fit.
Here is a simple guide to show you how to install the buttons and rivets available in the Miss Maude Sewing Store.
you will need:
a solid metal surface (the bottom of a cast iron pan will work!)
an awl or other sharp point - ie a nail.
wire cutters (for rivets only)
your rivets and buttons
extra fabric, rivets and buttons to practice
It is recommended that you practice on a scrap on denim (the same number of layers as your finished garment), before you try installing on your garment.
She has a thing for stacks of beautiful fabrics, delights in holding something made to last, and respects good craftsmanship. These are the driving forces behind the Miss Maude shop. And here are her musings.
