[These jeans were made for and modeled by my daughter Mori]
My original post was for Fabric Mart HERE but I wanted to introduce a blazer in the mix as an alternative, here on my blog. I chose this big floral denim fabric from Fabric Mart that worked out wonderfully. **WARNING:This post is flower heavy and it may be too much for ya but we decided to go all in with the flowers, this is what I do! [Blazer is RTW]
I had my eyes on this Birkin Flares pattern by Baste and Gather every since it came out. I know you have seen these babies all over the Internet looking as fabulous as ever. Lauren did a great job with this pattern. I love the look of these jeans and the construction was a breeze. The zipper install is by far the best install for jeans E-V-E-R!!! The only modifications that I had to make was taking 1 inch off the waist on each side. I made size 30 and the waist measurement I needed was 28" and I added two inches to the length to allow a 4 inch heel. After it was all said and done I did not need to add a whole two inches to the length but better safe than sorry. Mori usually wears skinny jeans all the time so the fact that these were form fitting jeans at the top and flare at the bottom, they worked out great.
Now here are the details as I was sewing these babies!
Flower power to the people and a big thanks to Lauren over at Baste & Gather for this marvelous pattern. The review of this pattern were my own thoughts and I definitely recommend this pattern if you're looking to make a pair of flare jeans! This for sure is one of my favs!
