Once again, the boys desperately need pants, so I made two identical pairs with waistband elastic inserted in addition to the zip flys (or is it "flies"?). It's a lot faster to sew two pairs of jeans simultaneously than back to back. It cuts in half the mental processing required, which is good since I have a lot of things competing for my mental processing time. I guess Henry Ford was on to something there, huh?
I still haven't made a noticeable dent in my 3,000 yard spool of gold topstitching thread. Apparently, the thread is good for hair weaving, too, if you do a lot of that.
The pattern is my much used Ottobre 1-2004-24. I'm getting a lot of use out of the one time I traced that pattern! One boy got extra length, but the width is still more than sufficient. Since I've made this pattern several times I know that the pants won't look too baggy once the denim softens up in the wash and doesn't stick out so much.
