I've been waiting for a decent day to model my new Jeds. The threat of a major snowstorm has passed, so finally, here they are. Undoubtably, the best pair of pants I own! Beautiful inside and out. Thank you, Thread Theory, for this great pattern. I can't wait to make more, especially the shorts version for the upcoming summer.
I made my Jeds with a brushed cotton twill from A & K fabrics in NYC. The color is a dark teal. It works perfectly with almost every shirt I've made. Here they are with a patchwork madras shirt. A total knock out! The season for wearing this shirt is very short, basically from now until the hot weather arrives. I plan on wearing this combination a lot.
Here I'm wearing them with one of my controversial ombré dyed shirts. I love this color combination! No one else has this look, so it make me feel like a million bucks.
I added a little whimsical "Levi's" type tag to the back pocket. Just a piece of my bias trim fabric sewn in. I omitted the decorative topstitching on the patch pockets. Just a personal preference.
This was my "Christmas" shirt, which I riffed off a vintage McCall's pattern from 1983. One of the male residents at my mom's nursing home really liked it! I like it too (even if the stripes on the pockets don't line up perfectly).
Love them with last year's spring buttondown! Like they were made for each other.
So when are YOU jumping on the Jeds bandwagon???
