Hey Creatives. Today’s look highlights my version of the very overdue Mimi G for Simplicity 8222. I’ve been teasing these jeans on my insta story since January and finally got around to snapping pics this past weekend.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know this pattern has been chilling in my sash for a few months. Making a pair of jeans has always been a great idea, but I always found an excuse to not take a stab. First, I wasn’t up for the challenge, then couldn’t find the right color denim, didn’t think it’d turn out right…then I decided to make the jeans.
About the Jeans:
This blog post starts a short series of denim. After making these jeans, I caught the denim bug and made myself a denim jacket (see the big reveal next week) and just purchased black denim to make another pair of jeans. 😛
I’m at the point where I might not even purchase jeans anymore. I cut a 12 curvy fit, but next time I’ll cut out 14 curvy fit to account for my booty and take in the side seam to get more of a Fashion Nova skinny jean feel.
Whatcha y’all think about the jeans? You like? Let me know below! Also, if you’d like real-time updates on things I’m working on, follow me on Instagram. I don’t always write a blog post on each make, but I usually post all my makes on the gram and/or ask from your suggestion on my InstaStories.
PS – My giveaway is still taking place on my youtube channel. Be sure to participate.
