Highly unusual these days, but I actually sewed on a weekday, and that's the proof above. I snuck away from work yesterday for a bit up to the sewing room where I cut out my jeans. Then, since I was on a roll and the bug was biting, I started to sew too. I had to force myself to go back to work. This work stuff really gets in the way of things. ;-)
I love making jeans. I know I'm probably weird but I find all the topstitching to be very relaxing, in that mindless, lose-yourself kind of way. Good thing, because there is a LOT of topstitching to be done on these.
I did add a fly front but kept the same pockets per the pattern. I knew I wouldn't want to spend the extra time to change out the pockets and I was right. I'm also adding traditional jeans back patch pockets. My rear needs something to break up the wide expanse. ;-)
I would've continued working on these last night but I had to go to the grocery store. The cupboards were nearly bare, which is not a good thing in this house. Then I threw some laundry into the washer, got caught up in the football game on TV, and slowly felt all the energy drain from my body. Not the best time to be in the sewing room trying to sew straight lines.
Work is a teeny bit slower this week so I'm going to try to put in some 10-20-30 minutes blocks of time to make more progress on these jeans. Of course, it's still about 900 degrees outside so I probably won't even want to wear them for another month.
