Mimi G for Simplicity 8222 Skinny Jeans

This is the first of at least a couple of posts about this pattern as I plan to blog about my progress sewing my first ever jeans. There have been many popular Jean patterns over the years and I’ve even bought a few but it’s always been my thought that with all of the work involved in sewing jeans (I’ve mentioned many times, how little time I have) I may as well buy them and just sew the rest of my wardrobe, and that was true until they discontinued my favorite style of jeans from Torrid. Since then, I can’t tell how many pair of not quite right jeans I’ve purchased. I LOVE skinny jeans, so when I saw this pattern I knew this would be the one to inspire my maiden voyage into Jean making.  Mimi is currently hosting a 5 part sew along for the jeans HERE and although I want to follow along because I always learn neat tricks and tips from her, I’m so excited about these jeans that I don’t know if I can’t wait five weeks (who am I kidding? I know I can’t) so I will likely forge ahead on my own, at least for this pair but I will be following the sew along closely. 

I ordered my fabric and all of my supplies


I cut out my pattern before work today 

And will cut my fabric later today. 


Here’s what I’m using for the lining for my pocket bags. 


I’m SO excited!   Have you ever sewn jeans before? Any tips or tricks you’d like to share? Will you be joining in on the sew along?
