The Jeans Are Taking Form

 Here is the progress since last time.

As you probably can see I've changed the thread color since last time. I wasn't that happy with the tobacco color so I had to unpick some of the stitching. Now I only have to add belt loops, coin pocket, rivets and buttons.

Lee Originals 101 Y

I'm actually in the middle of writing a thesis work. But the weird thing is that for some reasons there's a lot more fun things to do then to write, like do the dishes, play the guitar our take some photos of denim.

So here are some wear pics of my Lee 101Y. I've been wearing these every day since mid October 2012.

Building some denim

I'm back.

I've had an awesome internship at Lee and in March I'll be going back. I can't revile to much of the things that I've done but almost all the tops for the S/S14 Lee101 collection is drawn by me. And when I return in March I will see the final results of the clothes. I'm really looking forward to that.

But there still some time left until March and during this time I will produce some more clothes. 
I'm going to make a pair of jeans for a friend, the first pair that I'll be doing for someone else. We'll see how that goes. And also I'm thinking of doing some shirt-jackets for myself. 

Before my internship I started with a pair of jeans for my self and yesterday I did some more work on them. This is how far I got. 

I did a new thing when I attached the back pockets. I put the bar tacks on the inside of the pocket and then I folded the pocket over the bar tacks. This is an old way of doing it. I believe they did it because the bar tack machines weren't that powerful back then. And by doing like this you only have to go through two layers of denim.

I have to say I felt a bit rusty, it's been a while now since I sewn so I might redo some of the stitching.
