I was determined to skinnify these jeans for a perfect fit once and for all. I may have overfit them now, but they're definitely skinny. I don't know why, but the front fly looks super long. That must be an optical illusion given the skinniness of the pants, since I really didn't choose a 12" zipper.
I like the curved back yoke and the overall fit. One thing Alex doesn't like is the front pockets. It's too difficult to put his hands in since they're higher and, um, tighter than traditional jeans pockets.
I still used elastic at the back waist. I think everyone could benefit from more elastic in their garments.
Nobody was volunteering to pose in their new pajamas, and pajamas usually remain in the obscurity of the non-blogged anyway, but I had fun making the boys some guitar nightwear. Red cuffs for boy #1, green for #2.
