Up next on my three jean sewing spree are the Morgan Jeans. This is the first time I’ve sewn this pattern.
First off, the Morgan Jeans are a boyfriend fit jeans made out of non stretch denim.
I used another denim from the Indiesew shop, a 10 oz non stretch denim. This is the same fabric I used for my lander shorts (those were just bleached and tea dyed). I really am a fan of this fabric and how it wears!
I sewed a size six at the waist, graded out to an eight at the hips (just like my ginger jeans). I have a bit too much pulling at the hips on these, which is causing the button fly to gape open a bit. Next time I will add a little more room in the hips.
Other than that, I really like the fit of these! I think the boyfriend fit style is a fun, relaxed look. It’s completely different than the skinny jeans I am so used to wearing!
Again, I used red serger thread to finish the seams so I could get a pop of color when I cuff my jeans! Tomorrow I’ll show you my last pair in this jeans sewing spree and give you a little comparison picture of them all!
