Dark Skinny Jeans - Wardrobe Basic Sewalong

Time for my last installment for a garment (Lynne is doing black dress soon, she has been busy with new grandbabies) and that garment is the dark skinny jean.

First let's get  a couple ideas from RTW:

Okay, I think you get the idea for a skinny jean, so now pattern time:

Vogue 8774
Kwik Sew 5340
Butterick 5682

Jalie 2908, taper to get the skinny look - this pattern gets great reviews at PR

Now fabric time and remember the stretch!

Happy sewing on the wardrobe basics and plan on another link party next Monday.
