Floral Skinny Jeans

I have been seeing floral pants everywhere this spring. These are just a few that I liked from Asos

I decided I just had to have a pair. The problem was that I could not find a floral fabric that ticked all the boxes. If I loved the print, the type of fabric was all wrong. Finally I found just what I wanted on MarcyTilton.com. As I said in a previous post, this was my first purchase from her but it won’t be the last. The fabric is considered a twill denim, but it is a VERY lightweight denim. It has good stretch and recovery and is perfect for warm weather pants.

I used my Angela Wolf Angel bootcut jeans pattern. So far I have used this pattern to make two pair of jeans, a pair of yoga pant capris, and now these skinny jeans. It really is a TNT pattern for me. It can easily be adjusted by taping the yoke to the pants pattern and cutting them as one. I have also altered the waistband width successfully and taped the front pocket facing to the pants front to cut as one and added patch pockets. If you have never heard of Angela Wolf, you need to check out her website and also her Craftsy class Sewing Designer Jeans with Angela Wolf. Craftsy also has a couple of classes she teaches about using a serger, which I need to take. I have had my serger for over a year and have not used it yet…I am afraid of it, but that is for another post!

I have already washed and worn these several times so I already count them a win.
