Morgan Jeans

Morgan Jeans

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!
