great job love it when the result is so explosif.......
Lovely job - they look great! - did you use tear-away or cut-away stabilizer on the underside for this stretchy denim?
I used cutaway, but that probably was a mistake, as its pretty stiff. The pair I'm working on now has tearaway and its not too stiff, given the stitch count is over 40,000.
They are great. Love them.
What a great looking paints you have now. Well done!
Wonderful job, Well done
Love, love, love!
What a Awesome job you have done!!!It is Beautiful..Love it...Gorgeous!!!!
Beautiful job. Thanks for sharing
Oh wow - well done - they are wonderful!!!
These look fantastic and you've got a great pair of legs. Love Chris
Great job, Pamela...I haven't done a pair of jeans in several years...I did lots of them when I first got my Ellisimo...these look like a blast from the past..love them!
Thank you! By the way, if you are "Katy-Do", I bought a lot of your fonts from Sick and I absolutely love them! On the Christmas jeans I'm currently working on, I'm most likely going to use one of your fonts to put lettering vertically on them. I just can't wait.
These look fabulous. Great idea to use paint as well. A mlot of work. I know as I did one years ago when Husqvarna came out with a special card. Did only one leg and not the top part and had to open the inner seam. Added some crystals as well, specially bought the magic want. Wore it once and then someone was so smitten with it that I had to gift it as I "could always do another one" - which of course never happened :)
Enjoy wearing it, you'll look stunning!
Thank you! I too did a pair years ago after seeing a pair of very expensive ready made jeans with a triangle piece of lace at the hem. I made mine, wore them once & gave them away. Not because anyone admired them, but because by putting the design at the hem and nothing higher, it visually cut my legs off. I'm 5'1" and it made me look like I was a tank dwarf. Not a pleasing look at all. That's why I had these flowers travel all the way up. In my opinion it lengthened the looks of my legs. On these I had (still have) intentions of putting some crystals on them. Havent gotten around to it yet. But I will. Maybe. LOL
These are fantastic......what an eyecatcher!!
Wow! You got the look. Would it be easier to make the flowers as patches and attach with regular sewing machine? Also, just curious, did you open all the inside leg seams? These are happy pants.
Thank you. I opened the inner seam about half way up to start, and as it became more difficult the higher I got, I wound up opening it all the way to within about an inch of the crotch. I did the final top flowers and butterfly from the top down, it was just easier that way. I learned a lot as I went along, These are that stretchy denim so it started to pucker after the first thousand or so stitches. I immediately added more stabilizer underneath & a wash away stabilizer on the top of the design. That solved the puckering. As far as a patch goes, yeah, probably would have been easier in the long run, and on my next pair I will try that. I've already started a pair of Christmas jeans. I'm very excited about them and these flowered jeans were just the motivation I needed to crank up Miss Daisy (my BL Destiny) and gitterdun!!!
