I made two different types of button-fly pants. I used this pattern: Wyome Boyfriend Jeans by Named clothing.
I pulled out my Named pattern that I had used before. It was the third time that I used the pattern.
Last year, I made the first ones but I completely messed up! I wanted to get boyfriend jeans (Loose-fit jeans). I chose a size 38 (My normal size), but these were too small as boyfriend jeans and too big as normal pants. Oh, that's strange, I thought I chose a correct size... Honestly, these jeans were tacky! I never wore the jeans in public so I threw them away. I should have made a muslin first.
These white checked pants were my second and these denim jeans were my third attempt. I made these check pants with stretchy cotton. I chose the pattern one size smaller on purpose. Besides, I cut an inch off each leg. They turned out nice slim fitted pants. I am happy with the result but I wanted to make boyfriend jeans...
I finally did it! Boyfriend jeans! (^_^) I made these jeans with 9 Oz denim. I chose the pattern one size bigger so I decrease to the waist by a few inches. I really love the button fly. In order to highlight the button fly, I increase one more button ( 5 buttons → 6 buttons).
I designed and embroidered my initial "e" on these back pockets. I made the removable suspenders. I love this idea! I am wearing a ruffled top in these photos is by Bruda pattern: Ruffle Shirt 08/2015 #113.
If I try to use the pattern again, I would make the one size BIGGER or one size SMALLER than my normal size (Other than the waist piece). I usually wear these pants without the belt to show the button fly.
I messed up the first project, but I love this pattern now!
