jimmy jeans part 6
(i'm quite the specimen, aren't i?)
and just like that i realized i'll never be able to make a true pair of selvedge edge denim jeans. if i had to push the knee lines in to compensate for my knock knees they'll never look right if i push them out again to line up with a selvedge edge. i'll still use the selvedge denim because it's higher quality, but i won't be able to incorporate it into the final jeans, which doesn't bother me that much considering i don't roll my pants up and you'd never see it anyway.
it's a jeans snob thing.
yes, i did just make a gallery of my ass.
also, it's worth noting that while making the "minor adjustments" the front and back pattern pieces were so similar that i actually was adjusting the front crotch curve when i meant to be adjusting the back crotch curve a couple of times!
