Mimi G for Simplicity 8222 Skinny Jeans Part III

Hi guys, so this week we put the zipper fly and the front section of the pants together.  For some reason, I didn’t get a ton of pictures of this stage (maybe because I was so happy to be done with the top-stitching) but it’s a lot easier than you think to put a fly front in, like anything, you just need to take your time.  I sew mostly dresses so this was a great refresher for me.

I LOVE dark denim, so much so, I have to remind myself to buy other hues.  It looks so good against the top-stitching thread.  I also bought white top-stitching thread and I might use that on my next pair.

I’m still perfecting my top-stitching but I did make a couple of small bar tacks on the fly.

I can’t wait to try them on next week.  I’m super excited about the possibility of never having to stress over finding a great fitting pair of jeans again, and not having to settle for just what’s out there.
