It was hard to get a decent shot of these on the bed and I don't have a pants mannequin. It's about nine hundred degrees here today and way too hot to put these pants on for a photo. In fact, I haven't even hemmed them because I was too sweaty to ease my way into a pair of skinny jeans!
I used the same denim for both. It's a very stretchy fabric from Fabric Frenzy at Nerang that I bought for $15 a metre. It's a lovely quality and a much darker shade of indigo than these pictures suggest. Next time, however, I think I would use denim with less stretch. The topstitching is a quilting thread, but I've forgotten the brand. The colourway is Citrus and I really love it.
This has been a weekend of firsts; first time sewing denim, first time sewing jeans and first time using a twin needle for topstitching on anything other than stretch.
The sun is over the yard arm but it's still stinking hot, so I'm off to have a cold beer and cut out a pink top ...
