My skinny jeans for the Wardrobe Basics SAL are ready to rock!
OOP Vogue 8330, originally a low rise skinny pant a la 1995. I raised the rise significantly (as you can see) the last time I made these. The front rise was great, but the back was actually a little too high and sagged with wear, so I shaved about an inch off of the top of the yoke at center back, tapering to nothing at the side seams.
last post, I used this amazing variegated pink thread for my topstitching. It was the devil to photograph, but with some judicious editing, you can get an idea of how it turned out here. For the closure, I used a black heavy duty snap - love those, no buttonholes! And instead of rivets, I used the top half of small pink pearl snaps. I tried to find some pink rhinestone rivets, but I could only get them by the gross, and really, how many pink rhinestone rivets does one girl need?
