Considering denim trousers

One of the things I’ve being doing since I’ve been working for myself is catching up on my sewing when things are slow. I have a huge stash of fabric in our guest room, and tons of patterns, so it’s been a great chance to make some new things for myself without having to spend a dime.

I recently made myself a pair of trousers using Vogue 8547, which I frakked up pretty good during the making and had to completely take apart and re-draft all my alterations. Of course, now they are fixed and fit well and I love them, I want to make another pair from this pattern. No sense in letting all that fitting stress go to waste on one pair of trousers!

So, I pulled some stretch denim from my stash and am considering making essentially the same pant, but with a few style alterations. I am thinking I will add a “change pocket” hidden at the right front near at the waistband seam, back patch pockets, and a zipper guard on the fly! (Yow! Don’t wanna get caught in a brass jeans zipper!)
