Hi everyone, or as we say in Georgia, hey ya’ll! When Tammy and Nicole of D&H Fabrics chose me as one of the bloggers for their first ever blogger’s tour, I was ecstatic! I also knew that I wanted to take this opportunity to make something that I’ve never created before, due to fear of failure. I wanted to make jeans pants.
As soon as I entered the D&H website I was so in love with the selection, that I could not just choose one fabric to use for my project. I chose the cone mills slub indigo denim and the cozy cloud sweater knit. If you’re going to make jeans, why not make a top to go with it right? The denim fabric is so sturdy and comfortable. I could tell right away that this fabric was made to last. The sweater knit is so soft and cozy (now I understand the name) that I must order more to make jammies.
I am a big fan of Megan Nielsen’s patterns, so of course I had to use her Ash jeans pattern. For my top, I used my go to t-shirt pattern, Jalie pattern, 2805.
I must admit that I had no idea what I was up for when creating my jeans. Constructing the jeans was not the difficult part, the topstitching would be the Magnito to my Professor X (Marvel comic fan). However, I pushed through, and I must say that I am pretty happy about the outcome, considering that this was my first time making jeans.
The top was a very easy make, and I love it so much, that I’ve already washed and worn it three times since I made it a week ago. I must say that the sweater knit fabric is such great quality that even after so many washes in such a short time, it holds its color and texture very well.
I am grateful to Tammy and Nicole for allowing me to be a part of this wonderful journey. Through this, I have discovered wonderful sewists and amazing fabrics. I look forward to creating more projects with their amazing fabrics.
